It’s summertime, which means the kids are on and off camp throughout the summer. We’ve done a few projects in the past with Raspberry Pi and Arduino, and this project for a Card Skimmer Detector came across my feed from Make.
Not content with just following instructions, I ordered a slightly different display than the one used by Tyler Winegarner for the article. I’m hopeful that it’s similar enough, and a quick review of the driver referenced in Tyler’s code seems positive.
Two of my kids will attempt to get this going on Pi Zero W’s with preinstalled headers from Adafruit, and I’ll dig in with some soldering required. I also ordered some small piezo speakers and a USB GPS receiver that I might try to integrate. I pre-printed a handful of basic Pi Zero cases from mynameishamish via Thingiverse but will probably design something more custom after we see how the project comes together.
