We love this solar powered pi project tutorial from AaronThacker946!

My plan was to make a solar powered raspberry pi. To run a Facebook AIML chat bot written in c#. (In the daytime)

What you will need:

1 x Raspberry pi (we used model B)

1 x 5 Watt solar panel with USB connector

2 x Female breadboard connector (we used something similar)

1 x USB wire with connector

1 x Toggle switch

1 x Brain

1 x Soldering iron & solder

Powered by the HACKSPACE LEICESTER and INSTRUCTABLES for supplying the solar panel.

  1. This is interesting, I could use it whenever or wherever I want. It’s very useful, especially when traveling. Thank you for sharing.

  2. To display a GUI from the Pi on your Win PC, do this!

    Install Xming on your Win PC

    In your saved putty session, under ssh/X11/Enable X11 forwarding,place check mark and save.

    First start Xming, an icon will show up in the system tray, nothing else to do.

    Open putty session to the Pi, and enter /etc/X11/Xsession

    Your Pi desktop should open!
