Another successful pi jam,   Tom Brough set up his latest project, on the pi, which uses a wii remote to control a helicopter flying over open street maps,  this works very well and you can move around the map area,  which was set for the locality of the Pi jam. You can see a video and screen shot at http://dcglug.drogon.net/previous-jams/ 

The day also saw a new pi user leave with his pi set up and ready to go,  and I helped or suggested a solution to a few problems.  Tom Brough also demonstrated his robot arm and robot,  

The next Pi jam is 8th March 13:00 to 15:00 at Paignton Library, 1st Floor. So if you're into coding or hardware hacking on the pi, then come along on the day. The more people the better as that makes for more demos and a bigger pool of knowledge to draw on to help solve problems etc.   The above website has details of how to get in touch for more information.   You will need a Torbay Library card and your PIN number to access the internet.
