DIY RaspberryPi Powered Google TV #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Donald Derek shows how to build your own Google TV using Raspberry Pi, NodeJS and Socket.io:
Build your own Google TV
Hackers & makers like to re-invent the wheel, and it’s always fun when you do. So we’re going to
build our own version of the Google TV using the following open source technologies:
Raspbian OS – a Debian distro specially made for the rPi
Socket.io – to handle the connection between our remote and our TV via websockets
Express – to handle some basic http requests
Omxcontrol – a simple module to control the OMXPlayer which is the best video player on the rPi
Youtube-dl – a script that let you download youtube videos
Moustache as a template engine Youtube API

Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our
Raspberry Pi related products.
Have you tried the new
“Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro”
? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi. But wait, there’s more!
Try our new Raspberry Pi WebIDE!
The easiest way to learn programming on a Raspberry Pi.
We now have
Raspberry Pi Model B with 512MB RAM in stock and shipping now!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s
CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
