Why you need a raspberry PI

By now you’ve probably had a friend mention a raspberry Pi. If you’re not geek enough, it probably went right over your head. One of my geek friends said, “Why do I need a Pi? It’s just basically a cheap cell phone without a screen.”

While he does bring up a good point, much like a cell phone, there are many cool things you can do with it. Here’s some of my favorite projects I have running on my RaspberryPi’s at home.

Cool things to do:

  • Media Player (I Run Plex) – Have a TV that’s not smart? Or could be smarter? Try running a Pi
  • Retro Gaming Machine. Before you drop $ on one of those classic Nintendo boxes, why not make your own thats 100x better?! Check out (RetroPi)
  • A Home Server – (links coming soon. )
  • Your very own Dropbox – (same )
  • Syncthing backup device – Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized.
  • A network Ad Removal tool with Pihole
  • A home network Virtual Private Network with PiVPN.
  • A Brewing system http://web.craftbeerpi.com/
