so these little computers are all the rage right now. as I type, i’m installing RetroArch – some software for running retro emulators on a raspberry pi. check it out here: http://petrockblog.wordpress.com/retropie/.
don’t know what a pi is? it’s a AU$41 computer. you can load Linux on it. you can load android on it. you can do cool shit. it’s the size of a credit card and spits out audio and video via HDMI. check it http://www.raspberrypi.org/
I’ve gotten myself one in order to create my own dropbox clone. i’ll be following the tutorial I found here although my case will be made of lego. I actually ordered two so me and my mate could hack an pi-in-the-sky (catchy huh?) together. so i’ll have an update once it’s done. so far I’ve just installed the raspbian wheezy distro for a play. I used a Samsung Galaxy Y mobile charger as a power supply (5V 0.7A) and an 8gb SD card I had lying around the place. so far so good. check the pics:
