DonationBox shoud be something like phisical crowd founding.
At the end of 2014. in my maker space Radiona I have created donation box V1 https://github.com/goran-mahovlic/Radiona_Donationbox , it was powered by raspberry pi and so complicate do replicate. Just look at th project log :)
My part of a job was to make electronics ...
Ivica Zdelarec (member of radiona) part was to make case
And Damir Prizmić (member of radiona) part had job to add nice pictures of our projects to this box
Nice looking basel is added by Ivica
Box is programmed from arduino, and you need a good serial debug for any project...
When all was done I needed to pickup data and parse it to check money and likes
Then I added a web page where I could check data in real time
And we placed donation box on exibition
We need to build custom PCB, because I cannot get SD card working on current board
