[Art Shanty Projects](http://artshanties.com) has been a long standing every other year event. A dozen or so artists build “Ice Houses” that have amazing themes, and then place them on a frozen lake in the middle of winter.

A group of folks came together to build [Elevator Shanty](http://danielbayn.com/fluxcorp/). It is an Elevator simulator and experience generator. It was built by a team of 14 people in total. A subset of us wired up the hardware and programed the software for the “elevator experience”. The inside was powered by several Adruinos, and a Linux computer running a custom written Python program.

We had a lot of fun making it- and would love to do a quick overview of what we did- and how we programed it.

Additionally, David Bryan will also show off a T-Shirt Cannon, and a Cat feeder that are both powered by a Raspberry Pi. [David Bryan’s Blog](http://www.drstrangelove.net “David Bryan’s Blog”)
