Figured it was ’bout time I did something with the Raspberry Pi Gen 1 model B that I bought a couple of years ago. I decided to make a multimedia hub with it, and mostly re-purposed parts form other scrapped or unused devices. Thus the ScrapPi was born.
A good first step is to consider what you want to be able to do with your media hub. Then prioritize the features most important to you based on practicality, and what’s within your means to accomplish.

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.
