Technology in the modern world has changed, mainly because new inventions are being introduced in the market every day. The computing industry, for example, is far much ahead, with new ideas flooding the market in more cheaper and simpler designs with their primary goal being to assist you with daily tasks. The Raspberry Pi is a good example of the recent invention in the industry. These tiny computers are an RM-based credit card sized and single board initially developed in the United Kingdom to aid teaching basic computer science in schools.
They operate on Linux operating system and have ports of many different OS’es. With the announcement of the release of the latest version Raspberry Pi 3, it is a gadget that you should at least acquire. The new version comes loaded with a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 1 GB Ram and a 64bit processor and this enables it to carry out different tasks easily. Now, let me take you through some of the best Raspberry Pi 3 projects that people have done on their Pi’s to make use of them or help to improve them.
