Pi Platter Instructions

The instruction manual is at https://github.com/danjulio/rocketblue-automation  Dan Julio’s talkpp command line program lets you talk to the Pi Platter. He also has code for the pi car from the kickstarter video, as well as a nature cam.

A python example done by Mike Seiler for using talkpp is at https://github.com/RocketBlueAutomation/piplatter

In case you don’t have a Pi Zero, you may be able to find them at Adafruit and Micro Center  in the USA.  If you are else were in the world, please email me at mikeseiler (at) aol(dot)com if you know of a good current source and I’ll include your note here. By the way, the Pi Platter does work with the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

By the way, in case you missed the Kickstarter, you can get a Pi Platter at https://www.tindie.com/products/globoy/solar-pi-platter/

Quick Start Hint:  In order to turn on the Pi Platter, hold down the power button for 2 seconds.  Holding it for 6 seconds turns the Pi Platter back off.
