Having a finger in the Pi
Submitted by Rakesh Pai (@rakeshpai) on Wednesday, 5 September 2012
The Raspberry Pi is awesome. It runs Linux. Linux is awesome. Linux runs node.
The Raspberry Pi has pins which you can connect external hardware to. You can then program said hardware. With node!
The Raspberry Pi is credit-card sized. It's compact enough to be mounted on aforementioned hardware. Said hardware can have wheels. Ergo, node on wheels!
If I can get it ready in time, watch the robot get sentient! Within the three laws of robotics, of course. Mostly.
PS: All this code is open source! Fork away!
Some understanding of Linux and hardware will be a huge win, but not necessary. I'll buy the beers later if we have a great hardware conversation.
