The best thing about Raspberry Pis is that they are so versatile. Being small, they can be mounted into diverse projects limited only by the creator’s imagination. I often find myself wondering what to do with my Pis after I’m done with them, and I think I’ve found an idea!
Reddit user RETROCUTION has shared his Raspberry Pi project “Mini Retro TV”. Powered by the diminutive computer and a small screen, the retro TV plays files from the SD card 24/7.
Right now he is gathering interest in the kit, so sign up for his mailing list to stay informed.
Here’s what he had to say:
I wanted to share a little preview of a project that I’ve been working on for about a year now. This is a fully 3D printed little TV that is powered by a Pi Zero and it plays my favorite movies/shows 24/7. It has buttons on the back to turn the volume up and down, rewind and fast forward, skip to the next movie and shutdown. It has a micro usb port on the back for power, and a standard full sized USB port that you can plug a thumb drive into with your movie files.
I am pretty much done with finalizing the 3D printed pieces and software and I plan to offer these as a DIY KIT. I am currently trying to source all the parts, but with everything going on in China right now it’s not been easy. I plan to write up a blog post with more information on my website so if you like this and want to be notified about updates visit my website and join my mailing list.
