The brains of the operation, a Box is the device at the centre of the Museum in a Box experience. It's powered by a Raspberry Pi computer, and also contains an RFID reader, speakers and a custom-built PCB that incorporates an amplifier, a real-time clock, a digital-to-analogue audio converter, and some blinky lights. The Box also uses the standard Raspberry Pi power plug.
Each Box also comes with a set of Admin Objects that help you keep your Box in tune. It contains:
- A Hello card
- A WiFi card to help you configure your Box to join a Wifi network
- An Update card so you can keep up to date with the latest software from HQ, or download content updates in your Collections
- 3x example cards to give you a taste of some great content
The Box won't do anything without either a Make Your Own kit, or some content to play, so please don't buy one unless you also have a kit. We're offering a Box on its own for sale for folks with Make Your Own kits that just want more Boxes.
