Makers Among Us: Dave Conroy’s Raspberry Pi MakeZine Project


Here at CRT, we celebrate the maker spirit. Mark Lesswing, our CTO and founder of CRT, is a perpetual tinkerer and hacker extraordinaire. He’s built some really cool projects, including a Node server on a Raspberry Pi and a software controlled model train rig. Mark’s also actively contributing to the RETS Web API with a number of Node packages Keith Garner, VP of ITS and former Managing Director of CRT, has also produced some amazing hacks. He built a traffic light control from an Arduino and has produced some fun projects you can find on GitHub and, as Keith describes it, ‘general dorking with openwrt…’. The man’s a poet. 😉

In this spirit, we want to recognize David Conroy. David is the Director of IT for the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® and has recently had one of his projects featured on Make, a webzine about makers. Dave’s project is a Universal Translator built on a Raspberry Pi.

The translator will take audio input and offer you a translation in the language of your choosing. The total cost of this project is $82 and change. You can do it in a weekend. This isn’t Dave’s first project of this nature. You can follow his other adventures over on his blog. Kudos to Dave and thanks for a cool project.

Do you know of some makers in real estate? What sort of projects are you seeing? Let us know and we may post about them.
