Prototype Swingometer powered by a Raspberry Pi

Pete Taylor, over at, has written up his project to create an old-fashioned Swingometer. The Swingometer at the moment does not track the General Election results (on account of us not having had the election yet!) but instead “scrapes” a URL to obtain a number for the swing reading. It’s great stuff and Pete shows us how to wire up the servo that controls the swing arm and also the code he uses to drive the servo to make the arm move. Read about it here.
