Contactless payment is awesome, but most miss its true potential. This project is about putting magical payment abilities right into your clothing.
This was one of those projects that came together really well out of a little inspiration and some creative constraints. I didn't track how long it took, but I think probably less than 2 hours.
Last week I wrote about the one hour challenge I set myself to setup my raspberry pi with its new camera module and get it running as an IP camera along with my other 2 dedicated ones. This led naturally on to wanting it to be set up a little better than precariously balanced on boxes and blue-tac'd in place. So I set off on another one our project to see how far I could get in building a case. Whilst 1 hour was no where near enough to do everything I wanted, it was a good way to prompt me to action. The challenge of an hour forced me to stop procrastinating and make some decisions to get going. Once the hour was up I was well on my way with a vision of what I wanted to do and so the weekend challenge was on ;-)
Over the Christmas period I had a chunk of time off, and so of course I filled it with many more things I'd like to do than I really had the time or energy for. One of these was to play with one of my Christmas gifts, a NoIR camera for my Raspberry Pi.
