Dinosaurs, a Raspberry Pi and Node Red

One of the Isle of Wight's most popular attractions  - a horde of animatronic dinosaurs! had a makeover last week (10th- 11th October) with a Raspberry Pi. This video is a general overview of  how the two day event went.

Staff at Blackgang Chine, (where the dinosaurs roam around) were instructed by Lucy Rogers, and Neil Ford on how to hack the electronics the Dinosaurs came with using a Raspberry Pi. Taking inspiration from staff member Mark Bulter who had already successfully got the T-Rex working on a Pi,  a group of enthusiastic would-be hackers sat around and learned how to use Node Red for the code running it on a Raspberry Pi.
