Catching thieves or helping science


Having a security cam for watching over your house can be useful for catching thieves. However, if you implement it in a Raspberry Pi, like we did, not all of the computing capacity is needed for catching thieves. So rather than waste unused computing time, we let the Raspberry Pi join a crowd computing infrastructure - in our case YoYo@Home from Rechenkraft and let it do calculations for science. So our Raspberry Pi is either catching thieves or helping science.
