Does Raspberry Pi sound like something you'd bring to a teddy bear's picnic? Or more like something you'd put in a teddy before dropping him from a balloon 39 km above the Earth's surface?
The answer is easy if you're Dave Akerman. Using a Raspberry Pi microcomputer, he programmed Babbage the teddy bear to repeat Felix Baumgartner's record-breaking skydive. During his fall, Babbage streamed photos and live video back to Earth.
I never thought of computers as something I'd make. Now I'm inspired to start programming my own!
