Overpowered Ornament Contains Tiny Raspberry Pi Cluster



Most Christmas tree ornaments are made of simple plastic, wood or metal and the most intelligent thing they might do is light up or play music. However, Chris Bensen, the developer behind the world’s largest Raspberry Pi Cluster (opens in new tab), has made what could be the smartest ornament of all-time.

The blue, 3D-printed ornament, which is shaped like Doctor Who’s Tardis time machine, contains a tiny Raspberry Pi cluster that consists of two Raspberry Pi Zeros, which are each powered by a USB power bank. The Pis connect to a blue LED light that sits on top of the ornament and blinks just like the one on the “real” Tardis does when it’s in motion.
