Step back in time with MCM/70

Learning APL with an MCM/70

We love Michael Gardi's impressive reproduction of the classic Canadian-built MCM/70 personal computer. Crafted with meticulous detail, Michael used a Raspberry Pi 4 to emulate the MCM/70's software and created custom keycaps for authenticity. Not just for show, Michael is using the machine to learn APL (A Programming Language) developed in the 1960s.

Create your own bedtime stories with ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion

Automatically create bedtime stories with AI

Create a magical bedtime storyteller using artificial intelligence with ChatGPT for narrative and Stable Diffusion for illustrations. Raspberry Pi writes stories while showcasing AI-generated pictures, with characters and settings decided by listeners. This project also provides insights on using ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion APIs, Python modules, and effectively storing and replaying stories.
