1000 Youtube subscribers, Maker Faire Paris, upcoming project and giveaway


Ok, I’m trying something a little bit different for this post (and video). There’s some news I’d like to share so here we go …

1000 Youtube Subscribers

My Youtube channel recently reached 1000 subscribers. Wow! This may not seem like much, but I consider it a milestone!IMG_0738

Thank you to everyone that subscribed, I really appreciate this, as it motivates me to keep going and share my projects with you.

In order to improve my future videos, I would like to know the following things from you:

  • what do you like about the videos?
  • what don’t you like about them?
  • what type of content would you like to see in the future?

Let me know in the comments! 🙂

Maker Faire Paris

MFPEarlier this year, in January, I submitted an application to exhibit some of my projects at Maker Faire Paris. A couple of days ago, I received confirmation that my application was approved and that I will be getting my own stand!

Maker Faire Paris takes place the last weekend of April at the “Paris Expo Porte de Versailles – Foire de Paris”. If you plan on attending, be sure to come say hi!

You can check for more information on the Maker Faire.


Upcoming Project

I’ve been working on a new Raspberry Pi project, this time using the model A+ in combination with the Skywriter HAT. Adding an IR LED transmitter and receiver, it allows me to control the TV using gestures. For example: swiping left and right changes the channel and swiping up and down changes the volume.

The project should be posted in the next couple of days, as I only need to finish the project enclosure.


To celebrate my 1000 Youtube subscribers which I feel are mainly due to my recent Raspberry Pi Zero projects, I plan to give away a Pi Zero including USB OTG cable and mini HDMI adapter.

Check this link to see how to have a chance at winning it!

Let me know in the comments: what would you make with it ??
