A little while back, Alex Bate from the Raspberry Pi Foundation discovered us through The Planets box Tom made over a weekend to experiment with a new object form factor, and public domain content, Holst’s The Planets.
Box Prototype No.13 – The Planets from Museum in a Box on Vimeo.
It was lovely to get a note from Alex wanting to find out more, and even better to host her at our office to meet and talk about everything, and write an article for MagPi, the magazine published by the Foundation.
But, what was absolutely the best and a thrill for this little crew, was to walk across the street to the local newsagent and buy as many copies of MagPi #54, and turn to the amazing four-page spread Alex wrote about us!!
- Download a PDF of the whole issue, free. We’re on Page 28!
And as a special bonus, Alex also included an image in the article that can trigger one of our Augmented Reality experiments!
Fun fact: if you download @AugmenteDev app & point it at the article on us in @TheMagP1 you can see some 3D we made for @SwkHeritage 📱✨ #AR pic.twitter.com/pfCWJozJ2J

So, thanks to Alex, Raspberry Pi and MagPi for this brilliant article! (I’ve sent a copy to my parents.) 🙂

If you want to learn more about Raspberry Pis and museums, you can listen to this interview with Pi Towers’ social media maestro Alex Bate. […]
