South African group relies on Raspberry Pi to deliver their album… from a cliff-face

South African group Bateleur decided that simply purchasing their latest album from iTunes was too easy. So, they took a Raspberry Pi, uploaded their album to it and set it to transfer the files to a USB stick when a “secret whistle” was heard. They embedded the Pi inside a semi-transparent fake rock shield and placed the package, that they’ve called “The Nest … wait for it… part-way down Table Mountain in Cape Town! If you forget your USB stick, you can also plug directly into the Pi and listen via the exposed headphone jack. You can see a video of how they did it below. Unfortunately, someone has since vandalised The Nest and it no longer functions. Apparently that seemed appropriate to somebody! 🙁
