Things for ThingsCamp

ThingsCamp * is nearly here, and we’re starting to have those pre-event conversations about what we’re taking along, asking other people which kit they’re planning to bring, checking out the spaces we want to use and trying to judge the probable safe clearance for a drone …

For a quick show-and-tell, here’s my collection of stuff that I’m planning to take along. Much depends on how I can package it all up for a train trip down to Plymouth but I’m sure I’ll figure it out. Finally my cardboard box hoarding habit has a useful function!

Nobody will be astonished to hear that I might also be talking a bit about Minecraft – either with or without hooking up electronics to the game API.

Looking forward to seeing what different ideas other people bring along, and what purposes they’ve put their gadgets to work on!

* There are still a few tickets left if you haven’t got yours yet …
