    Would this work as a portable unit ? So it could connect wirelessly ?

    I just imagine attending bitcoin conferences etc promoting feathercoin … Would be a brilliant tool for this


  • Regular Member | Tip new2crypto

    Some of the things you guys come up with make me want to piss my pants …

    Seriously though, this would be absolutely awesome if it can be made reality for Feathercoin. I would love to tour the UK showcasing something like this. I love it!

    If I can connect my wifi only iPad to the internet by creating a wifi hotspot with my mobile phone, then this unit could be carried anywhere and used to promote Feathercoin at any location.

    Imagine being able to attend any event, private or commercial, to be able to connect the unit to the internet, by wifi or 3G, and be able to promote Feathercoin, showing people the current trading value, and them being able to insert cash and receive Feathercoins in return. That would be brilliant!

    Make this happen and the Feathercoin community will really show what it is made of. More importantly it will showcase Feathercoin in ways that only Bitcoin has currently been and help propel us to the next level!

    Please make this happen 😃

    How about something with a 150x150mm foot print? is that small enough for you?

    I’ve done a quick drawing that is to scale of what something like this could look like with the note taker on the front, and then a little 3.2" screen and the printer on the sloped “top”

    Is it possible to have a machine that also takes coins ??? Given the price of FTC, even a few £ would get someone some coins after all. Just a thought, obviously it would make the size bigger …


  • administrators | Tip uncle_muddy

    I’ve spent a bit of time looking at the hardware side of this, only because I wouldn’t have a clue where to start witht he software. I’m hopin gthat Kevlar is going to work on that 🙂

    The current circuit diagram and spec for the note take, delivers a number of pulse to indicate the donomination of the note inserted, I’m struggling to find a UK based note taker that does this but in therory if we can find a taker be it note or coin as long as this is the method in which it passes the signal back to the device, and the software lets us configure the value based on the number of pulses yes you can have a coin taker on it. The tin work for housing the thing is only a case of chaging the hole and mounting points to take the new device.

    Is it similar to self service till equipment that we are after?


  • administrators | Tip uncle_muddy

    MyWyrm, I don’t think so but could be stood correted. This is simply a mecanisum for one to insert cash and then get a print out of a private key containing coins to the value of the FIAT inserted


  • administrators | Tip MrWyrm

    I mean the coin input bit. Surely those self service tills have a method of converting fiat coins and paper into a digital value?


  • | Tip null

    OMG guys…

    Seriously do this ahy.

    In a few months, If this can work out, I would gladly try to put one together here in Australia…

    Truly epic…


  • administrators | Tip MrWyrm

    There’s coin counting projects for R-Pi, I suspect notes will be a little more tricky though.

    Can’t we just wait for their kit to become available?

    Answered my own question. The Pyramid Apex 7000 doesn’t list GBP as a supported currency.


  • administrators | Tip uncle_muddy

    In addition to that, there version only supports an off-line device. We where looking at making this an on-line device so the exchange rate was up to date etc…

    I need to do some more hunting around note and coin takes to get a better understanding of the hardware, as from what I’m seeing this should be fairly simple to make it work with any given currency once we have chosen the correct type of note/coin taker.

    I’ll try and get on it tomorrow if I have some spare time, but between real work and the charity thing I’m a bit sort of time at the moment.

  • administrators | Tip MrWyrm

    Got in touch with pyramid tech. They do have a GBP firmware for their devices. Available as MDB, RS 232 or 12 Volt pulse mode.


  • administrators | Tip uncle_muddy

    +1 Well done sir 🙂

    Now all we need is a coin taker as that solves the note issue. Would make the case simpler if we could re-use the device for as many currencies as possible.


  • administrators | Tip MrWyrm

    The list of currencies of the 7000 is pretty extensive, for any other currencies they say they can be developed for a fee. “The fee is 495 dollars. However this is would be waived if you purchase at least 12 units of Apex.”

    There is a coin acceptor people are using on ‘piggy bank’ Raspberry Pi projects here with the manual here


  • administrators | Tip uncle_muddy

    Stop it!

    I’m trying to work, and your getting my mind working on this now 🙂

    Just noticed that DOGE have a nexus 7 built one, need to research more… Will get back to you… Thinking of ordering hardware today!


  • | Tip spynappels

    How on earth did I miss this? Awesome work so far guys.

    What’s the code written in for the R-Pi?

    If you want to go down the Arduino route, there are wifi and standard Ethernet shields available for the Uno and Mega (and with a little bit of bodging for any of them).

    That’s clever, I guess that would provide them with reasonably priced touch screen interface, plenty of juice and a stable OS! How would it interface with their coin/note acceptor? Usb? Bluetooth?

    I’ll have a dig, see what I can find for Android POS equipment.


  • | Tip spynappels

    I expect it will be a less robust machine though, using a R-Pi or Arduino and a small screen with a couple of buttons would be more robust and bulletproof if it is going to be moved around.

    Using I2C/SPI on the R-Pi or Arduino is simpler than trying to add a Bluetooth link or some such

    I think a simple bulletproof one would be a better advertisement than one with all sorts of bells and whistles which might go wrong at the wrong time.
