Theatrical endeavour for one lucky Raspberry Pi

Spencer Organ, who teaches at KESH Academy in Birmingham, had a problem: How to give a Tin Man a heart. For his school’s performances of The Wizard of Oz, he decided that a Raspberry Pi was the way to go. Thanks to a Unicorn HAT from Pimoroni he was able to have a very very BRIGHT, beating heart shining out from the actor’s chest. Brilliant stuff.

Update: Spencer has now shared his code on his blog

    What you can’t see in the photo is that the heart was beating. I will share the Python code later.
