Eurovision crown wearable uses Raspberry Pi Zero to show ratings and tweets

Tanya, from Sheffield maker company Pimoroni, wanted to celebrate the Eurovision Song Contest in style and decided to create a wearable. What she came up with was a Crown based on a headband, some cardboard and plenty of bits of glittery Christmas decorations. She added a Raspberry Pi Zero, a Flotilla dock, some Flotilla blinky sticks and a Scroll pHAT HD and then adapted existing software (as well as writing some of her own with the help of Sandy Macdonald) to allow her to set a rating with a Flotilla dial board and also display Eurovision tweets on the pHAT. A really lovely project which you can read more about here.
