MAKE Asks: Raspberry Pi Projects

MAKE Asks: is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

This week’s question: Some of the most buzz in physical computing for the last several months has come from the Raspberry Pi. What projects have you been working on using this board, or what are some things you’ve seen using this powerful prototyping platform?

I haven’t fiddled around with one yet, but so far my favorite project using the Pi has to be Sprite_tm’s Mini MAME cabinet. It brings me back to the handheld arcade games of the 80s, but also boasts an OLED marquee, and a nifty laser-cut design.

Post your responses in the comments section.
