Have you ever wanted to run something on your Raspberry Pi but it was only made for x86 processors? Box86 solves that and lets you run x86 Linux binaries on your ARM system – Pi, ODroid, OpenPandora, etc. It can even do dynamic recompilation rather than just using an interpreter, giving you a 5-10x speed boost.
What does that actually mean? You can run all kinds of games on a Pi! If it has an x86 Linux binary, you can probably run it.
What’s that? All of your games are in Steam? Well you’re in luck, because Steam runs through box86 too!
What’s another fun x86 binary that can be run? WINE! Using box86 with WINE gives you the ability to run Windows x86 binaries on an ARM system like a Raspberry Pi.
This guide has you build it and get a bunch of things running on a system where they normally wouldn’t work.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
