Rpi-setup by SuprVillain Rpi-setup by SuprVillain
My new Raspberry Pi setup (mostly...)
The Raspberry Pi is a Very small, full Computer board roughly the size of a credit card, as seen below. It has no hard drive, so it uses a SDMicro card as the hard drive. I got an "Entertainment Center" Keyboard/Touchpad combo for the keyboard (uses a nano adaptor). Wifi adaptor also, one that I needed to do nothing at all, it was out of the box ready.

The Pi has no on/off switch, hence the USB cable with the "button" in the middle. Acts as a power switch. The USB Game pad for Emulated gaming (NES, SNES, Sega, N64...), and a short USB extension cord, for the game pad, in case of a quick-disconnect has to happen (Like the XBox's corded controllers have, kinda). Still waiting for the Case, it should be in Monday.
This is my "test" unit to see how it does. If I can feel comfortable with it, I am giving thought to building another one and sending it to Xander (my son) and Kia (his sister) as a Christmas gift, as how I know that David has an extra monitor (HDMI plz) or it can simple be hooked up to a TV that has HDMI or RCA ports.

Note, this machine CAN NOT run Windows, it is Linux. However, the default OS is Raspbian, and it comes with kids software (mostly aimed at programming) on it, however, it can also be used as an XBMC Streaming and Local Content full featured Media Center. I will leave it up to Lillian and David as to how they want the kids to use it.
