Michael Darby, aka 314reactor, has been having ideas for electronics projects for as long as he can remember. “As a kid I’d try to make things (with poor results) by badly soldering up circuits. I was just too young to really make it work,” he says.
A lifelong video games and technology fan, Michael picked up his first Raspberry Pi in 2013 and was excited to play around with it and see what he could do with it. After a few false starts, he realised his inventiveness could finally be given free rein. His first big project was a Windows 98 Wrist Watch. Hop forward in time three years and he’s lost count of the number of Raspberry Pi boards he possesses.
