I still have an original B that I'm too lazy to do something with. :facepalm:
Any simple ideas? Something to kick start my lazy bum.  :D

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I have used mine for both and also played around with it as a desktop but lately it is just sitting on my desktop collecting dust :whistle: :facepalm:

Guess I need to dust it off and mess around with it some more :D

I have a 2B that I've had for 4-5 years collecting dust, and am currently building it into an emulator for gaming since I haven't done nearly as much as I'd planned (I had a project book that I'd bought alongside the Canakit I got the Pi in). I was going to get the 3B+, but now that the 4B is out, I figure I'll get it instead . At $55 with 4GB of RAM isn't bad at all!  And maybe a few Pi Zeros at present for robotics projects and the like--at $5 a pop they are cheap!

The 2B is OK, but is limited by the fact that it only has 2 USB outlets (meaning if you've got a keyboard and mouse, you can't also have a USB stick for loading up programs and such. Not to mention no onboard Bluetooth or Wifi.

I have one of the small keyboards with a touchpad that has a usb dongle  :cheers: that way it only uses one usb space and then you can use the other space for usb to load things but of course then you need a wired controller :think: so load things, then restart and plug controller in :D

Can't wait to see some projects, cody :cheers:

I've got my original Pi B set up as a headless ( :ahhh) remote computer. So I can tinker with it from the comfort of my laptop on the couch.  :P
I was trying to set it up as a WiFi access point, but was unsuccessful. Need to learn more!

Bought a Pi Zero W and a camera! I forsee some fun in the future, trying to integrate that into a robot.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Thanks. :cheers:

I'd like to learn C before Python, so I'm messing with an Arduino microcontroller right now.
Am I allowed to mention Arduino in the Raspberry Pi thread? :dwts:

All hail the hook!

Pretty sure thread derailment is part for the course on MTO

Haha!

Got a new Pi today. So I'm back in the modern age. :dd: And a camera!
I can't believe this tiny Pi Zero W has the same performance as the original rev 2 B, plus integrated wireless, for 1/3 the price! :o

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

So far, all I've done with it is to solder on the header pins and setup the camera so that I can access the feed wirelessly on my LAN.
Too busy with my robot chassis.  :D

(Quick question, who do I PM for an MTO gallery account? :think: )

Okay, small step...
Wired the ultrasonic sensor to my Pi and copied a python script, per a guide.
And it worked, once I fixed the code grammar mistakes that I made. :D

The sensor:


The terminal output:

Man I would love to play with one of those!

There is actually a shop selling (no doubt older models) then in town, but they are very expensive, not on the cards currently.

Registered shipping to your place would be €16 for 500 grams of Pi. (1 Zero W is like 10grams)
Would it be worth looking into importing a bunch and reselling the extras?

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

Phew!
Put together a chassis that wouldn't shake itself apart, and hooked up my Pi Zero and a Camera.
Now I can rove around the house remotely!

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

Imaging hooking up an air-soft pistol to that with some sort of rudimentary aiming device.and robotic trigger pull.

A little Leatherman information.
