Raspberry Pi: Possibly the greatest invention ever?

Just like the title said, the Raspberry Pi might possibly be the greatest invention ever. First released in February of 2012, the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B was developed in the UK to promote teaching computer science in schools and developing countries.

Almost immediately though, techies and tinkerers alike began finding alternative uses for them. For example, the Raspberry Pi is one of the main components used in the distribution of Kodi (formerly known as XBMC), a free and open source media player.

Since then, the Pi has grown in worldwide support, with many different models being released. In my personal experience, I have used Pi’s to create a multitude of different projects. Here’s a short list of projects I’ve completed using a Raspberry Pi:

  1. Media Center built on Kodi
  2. NAS Server
  3. Retropie Box
  4. Security Camera with USB camera

As I said above, that’s just a short list, and I plan on completing more, as more ideas come to mind. With future blog posts, as well as YouTube videos, I will share walkthroughs on how YOU can follow along and build your own Raspberry Pi project. As an added bonus, I’ve included a link at the bottom of this article, where you can get your very own Raspberry Pi Starter Kit!
