Now that I have an HDMI monitor on my workbench, I’ve started to tinker a lot more with the Raspberry Pi. I’m very interested in how programming on-screen interfaces can be integrated with programming the GPIO pins on the board. The video above shows my progress after just a couple of hours of work, which included the time it took to learn the basics of how to use Python’s Tkinter module to program a graphical user interface.

I’ve been curious to know what Makezine readers working on (or planning to work on) with their Raspberry Pi. And if you have a Raspberry Pi tip to share, let’s hear it! Is there a particular library you like? A piece of hardware that’s critical? Leave a comment and let us know!
