Pretty neat post, Andrew.

There are many projects I didn't knew before, great that you mentioned them!

BTW, what do you think about my resource on raspberry pi projects ( ... rry-pi-b-2 )? I did my best to cover everything in-depth, and although I’m a little biased I think it’s a lot better than what’s currently out there on the web :)

I would love if I could get feedback on it from an expert like yourself. I’m doing my best to get this in front of people who could really benefit from it, in this case your readers :)

Nice line-up. In addition to the ones on the list, a Raspberry Pi project "Call Mom Button" is another good starter.

It's a Raspberry Pi that automatically calls your mom (or anyone else specified in advance) using Plivo APIs, (sort of like a speed dial that makes an outbound call to any number, when you click on the button for the input.)

You can learn more about the project

This is a great list! I'm 11 years old and I blog about my adventures with my new Raspberry Pi. I'm going to try some of these. Follow my projects at
