Well, more ‘single board low power computer’ rather than ‘raspberry pi.’ However the pi is the poster child of the form factor.
Saw a video on YouTube that went on at how to give wired appliances WiFi through using ddwrt or tomato to firmware a router. However it felt disingenuine when the video painted it as simple, then casually mentions ‘oh that thing you have probably isn’t on the list’ then only sorta goes ‘go here for actual install instructions.’
Whole time I’m thinking ‘Raspberry pi could act as a wireless bridge and possibly have interesting ‘at device’ things that it could stow locally for retrieval or other uses.’
Another function I’d seen is getting the Dreamcast back online.
An idea I’ve had was to augment one of those ‘little free libraries’ so that in addition to physical books you can use a pi to offer ebooks and other texts.
Anyone else have novel pi uses beyond the brewing brain not?
