Above is the brains of the Wow Suit. The Raspberry Pi A+. I have 2, one is a backup in case I step on the 1st :) For $50 you cant really pass up on this power house. The RPI runs the following stack of software:
- Linux Kernel 4.1 – RASPBIAN JESSIE
- NodeJS specially built for the RPI
- The MRAA library – which gives SPI access to any NodeJS app
- The Wow Suit software
I have also placed an order for a body suit, and will be building the 1st panel in the coming days to test out a new layout . Also in the pipeline is 20 Meters of APA102 144ppm LED Strips.
