Justin Hayes’ Raspberry Pi GPS Clock #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

“The most ridiculously over-built clock ever?” via Justin Hayes:

As you can see here, it takes the combined efforts of 3 small, low-cost Linux running computers for me to tell time 🙂 The Pi in the blue Pi shell has an ultimate GPS soldered onto a custom stripboard PCB that exports its time via NTP. The only things here I didn’t purchase from Adafruit are the Ethernet cables and the Linksys router, turned wireless bridge that connects it all to my network.

Pi Shell – Blue Raspberry Pi Model A or B Case – A snap-together case for your Pi, this case has tons of slots for connecting to the Pi, making it a Pi-hacker’s best friend. This case fits all Model A and Model B Raspberry Pi’s. There’s a slot for plugging in a GPIO cable as well as slots for the (future) Pi Camera and a Pi Display connections. This case is simple but well designed! (read more)
