Check out this great video from Lon Seidman about how to run Chromium OS on the Raspberry Pi 3. Chromium OS is the open source base for Google’s Chrome OS that powers many inexpensive laptops with a browser-focused operating system. If you’re looking for a computer to do basic web browsing and use cloud services like Google Docs then Chrome & Chromium OS are a perfect choice. Lon shows the Chromium OS for SBC project and how its offers a version of the operating system that can run on the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. Although it’s still early in development and not super fast, it does look like Chromium OS on the Pi 3 is off to a great start and could make an excellent basic web browsing machine. Check out the video for more details.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
