Forget Me Not: Raspberry Pi Odassy Begins

We are pleased to announce our selection in to the highly anticipated Forget Me Not Challenge by Element 14.
This design challenge is all about solving your daily life worries about you house hold items and consumptions.
Some of the key questions that one asks in busy day to day life:
  • Did I leave the door unlocked?
  • Did I leave the iron on?
  • Did I water the plants?
  • DId I feed the cat?
These are the question that we are trying to provide a solution to help people not to worry any more about the mundane things and focus their attention on better parts needing their attention.

In this challenge the competitors would be provided with the best in class energy harvesting wireless control infrastructure by EnOcean in the form of their latest kit the EnOcean Raspberry Pi & Sensor Kit.

And you guessed it right we would be using the most popular Linux Board that created a new bread of makers - Raspberry Pi. And Element 14 has been generous enough to provide the latest B+ model for this challenge.

Not only Element 14 provides us with these goodies but they also provide us with Tektronix TBS1202B-EDU Oscilloscope and Eagle Cadsoft Pro 7 License.

Apart from this big lot of cool stuff from Element 14 we also get $500 budget to buy additional stuff from Element 14 to complete our entry.
Of course they are are great distributor of parts as well so off we go, implementing the next innovation worry-free-daily-life.

We wish to extend our thanks to Element 14, Tektronix, Raspberry Pi Foundation and EnOcean for organizing this amazing the challenge.
