Ho ho ho! It's time for an Internet of Things (IoT) Christmas Special project for Java SE Embedded on your Raspberry Pi. This one you can do with your kid. It's a Santa Detector, which was inspired by John Murphy's Arduino project.
This project will take a Parallax Passive Infra-Red sensor connected to your Raspberry Pi and a Java SE Embedded application code to send a Tweet when Santa has arrived at your house.
With this IoT Christmas Special project, there's going to be no way for Santa to sneak past your child this year. Heh, heh, heh... (or, should I say, "Ho, ho, ho"?)
Here is the parts list:
1 Parallax PIR Sensor (Fry's #6726705) 1 Raspberry Pi 1 Milk and Cookies (for concealment)
So, go out and buy the parts above and come back here for the rest of the steps... "You better watch out, la-la-lala-laaa..."
