Mock up of SolarBerry at Barclays Funday 2017

Mock up SolarBerry at Barclays Technology Centre Fun day

It was great to see the work Shanti Bhardwa has been doing to set up a mock SolarBerry in the cricket pavilion in the ground of Barclays Technology Centre, Radbroke. Powered by just two 150W solar panels on the roof, he was able to run several workstations, including a raspberry Pi zero showing movies.

We were also able to demonstrate the vast amount of content that could be delivered using RACHEL on a Pi and show people how they could connect to this and access the content using their phones. There was plenty of enthusiasm for the concept of reusing IT equipment whenever possible and for the SolarBerry in particular.
