Cotswold Jam tutorial kits vs. Dyson

I’ve just quit smoking saving myself ¬£300 a month, and I was going to treat myself to a new vacuum cleaner as a reward – I have an older version of the same and it’s fab but this one is even fabber.

But I’ve also started putting together a new python + electronics tutorial for the next Cotswold Jam at the end of April, both setting up my own prototype, and collecting components for 24 kits to be given away to tutorial participants. ¬†Sadly, this has taken a significant proportion of my Dyson money, but I think the result of my prototype looks pretty cool, literally:

Big thanks to Pimoroni for the custom Snowflake white version of their limited edition PiBow B+/B2 Coupe Midnight Black, the discount on the 25 mini-PCBs for the kits – you’re stars!

The give away kits will have smaller breadboards instead of the cakeboard shown above, but they’ll all come with the doors with neodymium magnets as the door knobs, reed switch, buzzer, on-off switch and wires.
