Harry Potter animated picture frame using a Raspberry Pi Zero from Les Pounder

Les Pounder‘s wife is a great fan of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (quite so, it’s my favourite, too!) So, Les decided to create an animated picture frame for her starring everyone’s favourite rogue Sirius Black. He found a cheap picture frame in Dunelm Mill and then took the back off. He then took a Pi Zero and a Pimoroni Hyper Pixel to drive the animated part of the project and laser cut a nice surround for the screen. A bit of start-on-boot scripting and he had his animated frame all working. Great fun! You can read more on Les’ blog and see a video of it in action below:
