I live in Texas. Most of the year, we have no use for a fireplace as temperatures frequently get over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. However, I have always enjoyed having a fireplace going for ambiance. One day I was sitting in my living room and noticed that the fireplace was about the same size as an old TV I had lying around. After a few quick measurements, the ecstatic feeling of all the measurements being perfect, and a little bit of work, I had a virtual fireplace crackling away powered by a Raspberry Pi. So I thought I would share how to make your own.
