Raspberry Pi

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Woot!  Got a Raspberry Pi B+ for Christmas this year.  It really has some possibilities, being essentially a complete PC on a tiny board.  Ordered a small powered USB hub to go with it, as well as a case for the Pi itself to keep it safe.  I’m thinking a XBMC or a slide show picture frame thing would be 2 fairly easy projects.

Arduino

I got an Arduino Uno R3 last year.  I had fun playing with it, but lack of time/parts put a damper on it.  When we get the basement finished, I hope to have a workbench area to play with it.  I was really hoping Matthew might take an interest in it, as he is a smart kid and really good at math, but so far, no luck.  Maybe Mason will take an interest.
