Fun list from makeuseof.
You’ve been thinking about it for a while, and you’ve finally taken the plunge: you’ve bought a Raspberry Pi. Looking at the device, you know you can use it for so many projects… but you’re not sure how. Can this little device really act as a desktop PC? As a server? As a radio station?
Yes, it can. Simply by installing an operating system on the SD card you’ll have a number of awesome uses at your fingertips. Occasionally, a specialized operating system is required, but overall the process is the same: boot up, configure your Raspberry Pi (or pre-configure with PiBakery), install some software, and enjoy!
To get you started, we’ve collected 20 great uses for the Raspberry Pi, all with detailed tutorials from us all at MakeUseOf.
We’ll assume you’re using a Raspberry Pi 3, but most of these projects will work on the older models.
