Tooth fairy conduit system with a vacuum and a Raspberry Pi


Jeff Highsmith, who previously created the wonderful Mission Control Desk and bedroom Apollo Mission has been hard at work again. This time he’s installed a hatch in each of his children’s bedrooms which give access to a pair of tubes into which they can put their fallen-out teeth. A vacuum cleaner in the loft is then controlled by a Raspberry Pi, which is itself triggered using an iPhone app. The vacuum sucks the capsule containing the tube up and away to the tooth fairy’s magical tree house. It’s a great piece of work and just shows what you can do if you’ve got imagination and time to spend. Below is a video of the project in action. Thanks to the Raspberry Pi Foundation for spotting this one which first appeared back in September 2013 on Make.
