Hi to all,
I would like to know if there is some already way how to display donations (coins&paper money) on some screen or projector, open source better. My aim is to be able to visualise directly at the moment "your donation" which you put in a donation jar or whatever on some display - main currency Euro. Are there some well documented easy to fallow projects? Anyone interested in this? 

I will be coordinating another crowd sourcing campaign at 30c3 and I think that the visualization of donations would help a lot, it should be combined with the Indiegogo donations, possibly also Bitcoin, we could be displaying the "current status" on our 37 inch screen.

If there is anyone interested in this please get in touch, preferably at our mailing list


I would love to help to make something like this happen but I can not get directly involved too deeply, I've already too much on my plate so I would support and try to provide what necessary. We have some budget too. The device doesn't have to be ready by 27/12, it can be played with during the conference, but sooner functional better.

Many thanks,


Frantisek Algoldor Apfelbeck

PS Are there any "cheap" commercial solutions?
