A DIY kit with an Arduino board and a Raspberry PI, built with the aid of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, has shown how to make an interior glass door from scratch.
The kit uses a RaspberryPi 3 Model B computer and an LED to make the doors glass.
The door is constructed with an acrylic sheet of acrylic which has been stained by the LED to produce a nice glossy finish.
The project was published by the RaspberryPi Foundation, a UK charity which supports projects aimed at reducing the impact of climate change.
The LED lights up when the RaspberryPI is in use, allowing the door to open and close, and the LED also has a built-in timer which can be used to shut the door when the door is not being used.
“It’s a really cool project to work on,” said Ben Leech, the project’s co-founder and CEO.
“I’ve worked in this field for a number of years, and this is my first project to actually try to build something from scratch.”
