Raspberry Pi Projects?

Pi, not pie.

Anyone else do any of the zillion and one projects out there with a Raspberry Pi?

Some of them are pretty nifty and low cost overall.  Built a tidy little NAS to house files and whatnot and provide remote access to friends if they wanted to share a large video file, etc. 

Even better, if any of you are interested, is the Pi Hole - it blocks ads on your PC (unlike ad-blocking software which only block the ads from displaying but still allow them to suck your bandwidth).  The Pi Hole also only uses the Pi Zero and you can knock the entire project out for less than $50. It removes all advertising on this site = )

Just curious if there are any other Pi fans on here who have done some of the more exotic projects available.

I built one for a RetroPie system. All the old video games I could ever want to play in one place.

Nifty. I've considered the same. They have a pretty sweet Gameboy kit to make it portable out there on Amazon too

man raspberry seems to have the graphical knowledge I grew up with and all.  

I dig this.

I'm ordering one  (or a couple) and setting up a retro gaming system.

We will see what other fun i can find with this.

Take a look at the retroflag nes pi cases and kits too if you really want to go the distance.

That's the kit I bought for my retropie setup

Not sure which one you have but some even use a separate game cartridge that houses the ssd that you literally plug into the case like you would a cartridge. Delicious stuff.

I don’t have that one but sounds awesome.
