CNET Top 5: Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
looks like we got 2 slots in the top 5!
A funny thing happens when the price of a pocket sized computer comes down to $35. If you’re creatively inclined, at least, you start to wonder what kinds of projects you could make with an almost disposable computer
My vote for the number one use for a Raspberry Pi, a retro game console.
There’s the Cupcade, the Super Game Pi, the Pi Girl Gameboy, and about a hundred other retro console emulation projects out there.
And that’s just for the original Pi.
The Pi 2, has already been seen emulating PS1 games.
So get ready for a whole new wave of Pi gaming projects.
And because the Pi works out of the box with USB gamepads, HDMI output, and built-in audio, it’s just an irresistible project for gamers.

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.
