Darth Vader Raspberry Pi Pico PCB Tracks Cryptocurrency #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
TheAmlituhedron on Twitter showed off this awsome pcb for and upcoming pi project they are working on. More from Tom’s Hardware:
Not only does this custom board look like one of our favorite space baddies, it also functions as a base for TheAmplituhedron’s cryptocurrency tracking project.
There are more details coming out soon but here’s what we know so far: The Vader board is designed to support the Raspberry Pi Pico form factor which should also work for Pimoroni’s Pico LiPo board. At the top is a place designated for an ST7789 SPI LCD display, likely intended to output cryptocurrency data.
