Multiple Pi Server

After a major server crash of my web and e-mail server I decided to make a Multiple PI Server. One reason is to save some energy though still using my own physical server(s). The second reason was to learn more about the different flavors of low costs mini computers.

The following parts are used:
– small power supply and a print board to extract the 5 volt supply
– Raspberry PI as webserver for http://a-bort.org, with SSD via USB
– Orange Pi as backup server, with SSD via USB
– Banana Pi with build in SATA support for email server, SSD via SATA (not included yet in photo)
– a 5 port ethernet switch

Videobot

Coming Wednesday I will present a new work at WORM.

Videobot is an unusual robot. It does its best to look at you, to follow and move along with you. While moving around, it tries to see who is in front of it. As participant you can help Videobot follow you, so squeaking and beeping, it can get to know you.

Videobot will be opened by Ilya Koppe!
Wednesday, Januari 13th, at 17 hours, Stichting WORM, Boomgaartssraat 71, Rotterdam
