These are my notes from the “Building a Steampunk Presentation Manipulation Apparatus with a Raspberry Pi” session at the 2016 FETC conference.

- He is running the presentation from the presentation device.
- Materials used to create his device.
- Raspbery Pi 2, which costs about $35. This version already has HDMI and Ethernet ports.
- Brass tubing from Home Depot
- Electronics from http://www.adafruit.com
- Skills needed:
- Steampunk spirit.
- Hands-on fabrication
- Libre Office
- guvcview – camera capture UNIX utility.
- Python is the default Rasperry Pi language.
- xdotool – imitates key press.
