Your Ingredients: Nexmo's APIs, Raspberry Pi.

In many parts of the world this is a time when families gather, celebrate, and eat pie. So what better time would there be to whip up some technology using a Raspberry Pi and the Nexmo API?

Here's the recipie for success:

  • Take one Raspberry Pi
  • Mix in some of Nexmo's Communication APIs
  • Season with extra technology to taste.

Warning: If you actually bake your pi, that's on you.

Once 'baked' tell us what you've cooked up, why it's so incredably tasty, and send us a way to enjoy it ourselves. That could be the code itself, a link (if it can be tasted - sorry, tested - that way), or a video it in action. Here's what we'll be looking for.

Judging Criteria

  • Use of Nexmo
    How well does the integration uses Nexmo's APIs? We want that use to be core to the integration.
  • Use of Raspberry Pi
    Does it do more than just use the Pi as a computer? Does it leverage its size, hardware extensibility, or other features unique to the Pi?
  • Overall Quality
    How seamless is the functionality? Are others inspired to build something?
