Title: Raspberry Pi
Post by: MunkiLord on May 18, 2015, 01:08:33 AM
Anybody played around with one of these? Thoughts? What have you used it for? They look fun. I'm going to buy one this week.

This looks like it has some real potential.    http://michaelteeuw.nl/post/84026273526/and-there-it-is-the-end-result-of-the-magic

I would love to play around with one of these! I've also been looking at the Bluetooth enabled chips.

Either one I could see doing some pretty neat things.

That looks awesome too! I'm going to have to buy that as well.

Last week I backed CHIP on Kickstarter. Not sure what all I can do with it, guess I'll find out in December.

Rezing this thread with actual first hand knowledge, yay!

So we have a Raspberry Pi that we use for retro consoles and it's awesome, buuuuut they are super delicate if you don't build them to last (we didn't) by getting a durable case, securing everything right, blah blah blah. And at times it lags a little (we have well over 600 games on there), but yeah it's worth how little the initial build costs. Neat little device.
