It’s Christmas folks! Ever wanted to catch Santa when you were a kid? You most likely wouldn’t have ever had the chance. But now you do! Well, you wouldn’t but your children or your grandchildren would. This Scratch program uses a low-cost, infra-red detector to set off an alarm when Santa sneaks into your room. It’s a great introduction to using simple sensors on the Raspberry Pi, and can be adapted to lots of different projects. Ideal for children of ages ranging from 8-12 (kids usually don’t believe in Santa after they reach their teenage years anyways).
