    Dude, fuck you with your freakishly long ad. I was in the shower listening to music, when your 1 year long ad comes up. I had to listen you struggling to screw a fucking screw “uhh, umpf, ahh, uhhh, ummmpf…and thats it”, not cool.

    Hey Ben, I have been thinking of a new project but I have no idea how I could add range to a wireless xbox 360 remote (that would connect to a pc)

    Fat cat

    Sort of. The Pi can run xbmc, so with the appropriate hardware and software tweeking you could make it into a DVR type device. It can also handle light netflix/youtube/streaming online, though true web browsing is rather limited. With a bit more software work, you could probably run some limited games (think arcade-style/emulators). That’ll take a good bit of work and it will be a bit slow, however. You should consider posting your question on the Raspberry Pi forums…

    I’m curious, is it possible to make a dvr/gaming/internet box like apple tv from a Raspberry Pi and other miscellaneous components?

    Trash Cat? Looks like he ate a garbage truck.

    Have you ever thought of making an oldschool arcade sharpshooter?

  17. jst259 July, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    Because that is how arcade games were made.  No screw heads on the sides of the cab (except for some old Taito games) but every dedicated CP I’ve owned had bolt heads on top of the CPO, usually because many control panels were made of metal not wood.

  18. jst259 July, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    The plexi overlay is completely unnecessary. Most CPOs are designed to withstand high use and still look good, there is no way a home machine would need it. Most arcade games that had plexi on the control panel had it because the game was converted and the CP had holes in it under the CPO.

  19. jst259 July, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    No, you couldn’t, because if you used raspberry pi it wouldn’t be an actual arcade game.

  20. twids49 July, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    couldn’t you use a raspberry pi as the actual arcade, its small, quite, and quite powerful for a computer that small? and it has linux: everybody likes linux

    Fatty!!! Shes such a good girl

  22. Peter Harms9 July, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    This is true. I completely forgot about that 12-13 hours ago. So it depends on if they want to go through all that configuration (not that long really) or want a portable one for HDMI capable devices.

    Made me laugh! .. actually there is now a budget model available a Velleman K8200 3D printer kit!

  24. vaxbuster9 July, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Great idea .. a budget Quadrotor run by an Arduino .. gets my vote!! has one already.

    Try adafruit if not!
