If you're walking in the area of Boston's City Hall Plaza today, you might find yourself the subject of unique photo collage tomorrow.
Twenty-five local middle school girl are out roaming the city with digital cameras they built themselves as part of Red Hat Inc.'s (NYSE: RHT) CO.LAB initiative. On Friday, they'll turn the photos into a digital art installation that will be displayed at City Hall and Boston University.
The girls built the cameras on Wednesday out of Raspberry Pi computer kits — small, simple devices that teach the basics of programming. (Click through the gallery above to see the building process.)
