- Any 40-pin Raspberry Pi
- Pimoroni Blinkt
pisi.py on boot
Every minute, it grabs the People In Space data and lights up an LED per person in space, in sequence.
If network is unavailable, the end LED blinks red while it tries to reconnect.
The API isn't updated quickly upon ISS departures and arrivals, as it's maintained by a single human.
There are usually 6 people on the ISS, and 3 come down before the next 3 go up. However it's possible 3 will arrive before 3 come down and there will be 9 and you'll be a LED short.
