For those that don’t know, a raspberry pi is a very low cost but surprisingly powerful minicomputer.

I’ve had one sat in a cupboard in my room for about 3 years trying to think of something not totally contrived and that will actually be useful to build with it. So far I’ve binned the following ideas:
- Smart mirror
- ECU for my car

- Server monitoring tool
- Facial recognition door bell
Among many others, I’m still racking my brains on what I can actually do with it. If you’ve got any bright ideas let me know.
