Projects I’ve Been Working On

Hi guys! CrazySqueak here! Today I’d like to show you some of the projects I have been working on.



ProcBeats is a rhythm game made using Processing.

I hit a bit of a snag when I found out that the sound library only works in the 64-bit version though (I was coding on a Raspberry Pi.)  Sadly it means that for now I won’t be finishing this particular project then!

You control the gameplay alone using the 1,2,3, and 0 keys.

You can download the sketch with a test level here.


SkedMan is a Raspberry Pi only schedule/homework manager for kids and teens.

This is my first program to come with an installer, instead of requiring you to manually run commands.

Install by running the command wget; bash in the terminal, and let me know what you think.


SqueakTweets (Internally known as JokeBot) is a Twitter program that tweets jokes every three hours with the hashtag #CrazySqueakJokes.

I did a little video about it as part of the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s Young Pioneers #makeyourideas competition, which you can watch here.

The tweets are posted on the twitter account @CSqueakTweets.

You can download the code to have a look here.

I hope you like my programs! Feedback is always welcome.


My visit to the Raspberry Pi’s 5th Birthday Party

Hi guys! CrazySqueak here with another blog post!

Today, I visited the Raspberry Pi’s 5th Birthday Party, and it was awesome! I got to see a bunch of cool projects and even got some new ideas!

Some of the cool projects I saw include:

  • Wizard Chess (From Harry Potter)
  • An giant operation game.
  • Super Mario Bros 3 running from inside a NES controller!
  • A giant “Raspberry Pi Birthday Cake” with Twitter-controlled lights.

After some time looking at projects, I listened to a talk about creating art with Processing by Matt Richardson. The talk was interesting and I got a cool idea from it. I also went to another talk which was about doing Raspberry Jams and that sort of stuff.

One of the best parts was the trivia quiz show. I didn’t do very well but it was still great fun. Afterwards we got to see what was inside the answer buttons’ box, which obviously included a Raspberry Pi!

Also, I chatted with various people such as Grace (HackerFemo’s Mum who does inclusive jams in London), and Philip Colligan (The CEO of the Raspberry Pi Foundation)!

Another great part was that I received a few free gifts from party bags:

  • A Drum HAT (Cool!)
  • A LED strip HAT (I can’t remember the name and nor can Google)
  • And 2 Blue Ducks (I love ducks!)

I’d also like to get a PaPiRus HAT at some point but we’ll have to order one of those online.

Overall, I think the Pi Birthday was amazing and was definitely awesome enough for such an important milestone. I can’t wait for the next one!
