    MacPro G5 Cheese Grater with Raspberry Pi 4

    element14 Presents  |  MAYER MAKES VCP Profile  |  Project Videos



    The new 2019 Mac pro looks like a cheese grater, no doubt. Earlier this year, a Maker exposed the fact that its design did not allow it to be effective for grating cheese, much to the disappointment of Clem! So he took it upon himself to build the world's first Mac Pro that actually grates cheese, and does it with power! The build started out with a Power Mac G5, the first iconic Mac to get dubbed a cheese grater! Clem develops his own motor control development Kit over the course of the project and puts it to use in the iGrater /Cheese pro /Mac‘n`cheese..
