Harry Potter and the Raspberry Pi Powered Wand

We have no thought if Laptop Science is taught at Hogwarts, but when it had been then we’re positive that the Raspberry Pi would play a serious half in it. Uninterested in casting spells on the press of a button, this project from Mo “That’s-so-Mo” makes use of the wand from a Harry Potter Coding Equipment and a Raspberry Pi Zero W as a gesture controller for the not too long ago launched Hogwarts Legacy sport.

Mo’s undertaking is nice. Certain we will mash buttons to solid spells, however the gesture controller provides a bit of extra authenticity to the motion. The wand itself is Kano’s formally licensed Harry Potter wand. If the title Kano sounds acquainted it’s due to its earlier kits which merged the unique Raspberry Pi {hardware} bundled with its personal orange keyboard and plenty of laptop science based mostly initiatives. The wand is supposed for use as a method to study coding, however Mo’s undertaking makes use of it for one thing rather more enjoyable.
