Helicarrier bed uses Raspberry Pi as a command centre

Andy wanted to do something special for his son. So, he took his inspiration from Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. and built a raised bed with a den underneath. He then filled the den with all manner of tech and Marvel stuff and then embedded a Raspberry Pi inside to control a missile launcher. The screen shows the picture from the Pi’s camera module (with torch for when it’s dark) allowing you to fire at will! The motorised door and keypad is controlled by an Arduino.

As a commenter on Hackaday said, he should get Galaga installed on the Pi! (Ref: The Avengers, in case you didn’t know!) Just a lovely idea and one which is sure to fill the minds of fathers everywhere with excitement and a certain amount of dread. Full build instructions and gallery are available on his blog.
