This project is centered around the Adafuit PiGRRL 2. Rather than go with the more compact PiGRRL Zero, we stuck with the chunkier PiGRRL 2 design to retain that authentic retro-console aesthetic. We plan on taking this thing to makerfaires and conventions, so having marathon battery-life is a must. Dropping a Zero into the larger case leaves heaps of real-estate for battery upgrades!

We made a Raspberry Pi camera that captures GIF files and optionally tweets them over WiFi! It's built around a Raspberry Pi Zero W and a Pi Camera module. The camera connects to a pre-programmed WiFi network to tweet the gifs, but you can also retrieve them from a shared folder if you have another computer on that network.

WHAT IS MQTT? MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) is a simple and ‘lightweight’ way for internet-connected devices to send each other messages. This is important for home-automation because devices need to send messages back and forth like ‘turn on the lights’ or ‘turn off the sprinklers.’ Devices using MQTT communicate by publishing data to topics. MQTT devices subscribe to a topic, and when data is published to that topic it is pushed to all the subscribers.
