PiPurr remote cat interaction server
When the cats away, the mice will play. But…. what’s the cat doing when YOU’RE away? That question led Tris of CantHack, a group of geeks from Canterbury, UK, to develop PiPurr. Tris explains, “PiPurr is a simple client-server solution. The server runs on a Raspberry Pi, for low power consumption and provides the functionality – capturing images, dispensing treats, making sounds play from the speakers, etc., and clients connect to this over HTTP and request those actions. The server is implemented as a small Python web server, using HTTPServer that, instead of serving static files from a directory, exposes a small number of URIs that correspond to those actions. This means that all that is required to access it is a browser.”
Tris notes that he plans to talk about this project at BarCamp Canterbury on the 27th April 2013 if you would like to find out more.
