The Simpsons TV Made IRL with Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Here’s a cute little working version of the Simpsons TV. Here’s more from Kotaku:
On Reddit, buba447 promises a how-to guide but provided this explanation for how it works in the meantime, explaining that inside was a Raspberry Pi Zero with a 32 GB and card. The Pi was connected to a 640×480 display and powered by a USB cable. The episodes were all compressed specifically for the screen. They were then loaded onto the SD card and then begin playing episodes at random. The speaker is a cheap, one-incher that buba447 salvaged from a dead piece of old hardware. The whole thing is impressive. Well done!
