linux.com posted this great year-end round up of RPi projects:
With over two million Raspberry Pi’s in the field, the number of Pi-based hardware projects has mushroomed accordingly. Scores of websites and YouTube videos show how to use the Linux-based embedded boards to do everything from water your lawn to power your next Halloween costume. While the Pi may not be the most open source single board computer available, the infinitely creative ways people use it — and share their designs so freely — reflects the true spirit of open source.
The Top 10 slideshow published here highlights inspired, yet affordable, Raspberry Pi based projects that go beyond the typical baby cams and rolling camera robots. Sometimes this extra effort results in utility — often by providing a much more affordable alternative to a mainstream technology — and some could form the basis for a successful consumer or industrial product. More often, the projects verge on the artistic, the conceptual, the obsessed, or the absurd. Whatever the motivation or goal, they’ve got our attention.
