Software that turns a Raspberry Pi computer into a time-lapse camera has won a contest for teenage programmers. PySnap was written by 12-year-old Aaron Hill and took first prize in the 13 and under category of the Raspberry Pi summer coding contest. The software allows Pi owners to connect a USB camera to the device and fine-tune the interval at which it takes pictures. For his coding prowess Aaron wins a cash prize of $1,000 (£627). The Raspberry Pi is about the size of a credit card but is a fully working computer created to help young people get started with programming.
