Pi in the sky? Mared Sadowsky demonstrates how easily small, inexpensive devices such as the Raspberry Pi can use the power of the cloud

In this video:

Marek has a camera attached to a Raspberry Pi, which is in turn connected to the cloud. Using a data flow chart in real time, he shows the flow of data from the camera and the device to the cloud, where facial recognition software acts upon the data and, very quickly, reports back to the user.


In addition, he is able to ask the device for the day’s weather forecast, and is answered in audio immediately. This is a simple illustration of how hardware can harness the power of the cloud.
