I have been seeing so many cool, DIY, computing projects using the RaspberryPi and I am itching to get my own for s few projects around the house and home office here. This small, general use, programmable system is really only limited by your imagination.
From the RaspberryPi web site...
"The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming."
Here are some great projects I have seen for the RaspberryPi recently...
- The Kano Kit—Building a Raspberry Pi Computer
- Build a Simple Time-lapse Camera with a Raspberry Pi and a Coffee Tin
- Turn a Raspberry Pi Into a Cheap Home Surveillance System
- Raspberry Pi Wall Calendar
- Turning A Pi Into An iBeacon
- The Perfect Present for Pi Prototypers
