Winning entries included an air quality and weather surveillance device, an automated pill dispenser, and a system to help elderly or disabled people answer the door. "It has been thrilling to see how the Raspberry Pi has been used in such inventive ways in this competition," said Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton.
