11 Raspberry Pi Projects That You Wouldn't Want To Miss For The World!

The versatility of Raspberry Pi boards have made them available for a variety of projects. But there are some people who have built devices that are easily more innovative and ahead of the others. So, here are 11 of such crazy projects using Raspberry Pi.

1. Airplay Reciever

This is a cheaper option for using Apple's Airplay feature to stream music onto a stereo or similar device. While Apple's own products are quite expensive, a $35 Raspberry Pi board can help you avoid the cost but get the samwe result.

2. Pandora Streamer

The overview on this project's website says, "Using a Raspberry Pi you can create a pretty cool stand alone Pandora Streamer. Its a pretty easy project to put together and will only take an evening. Even though this project is basic from a Electrical Engineering standpoint you will learn the basics of GPIO, Python, BASH and basic Circuts. The best part is you can totally use this project on a daily basis. This version also will allow you to use the device as a Airplay reciever when you are not using Pandora."

3. Robot to read audiobooks etc. out loud

This is an audiobooks player that has but one button. It is the easiest thing to use and can be used on a daily basis. It is especially suited to those who can't or don't like reading. In addition, it can also double up as an mp3 player and can be used to listen to other audio.

4. Solar-powered FTP server

This project uses a very simple $25 Raspberry Pi case with all the required output slots to build an FTP server that runs on solar power.

5. Supercomputer Raspberry Pi

This is a project from the University of Southampton. It is called the Iridis Pi, named after the university's own supercomputer Iridis. It uses a 13 ampere mains socket and a mains passing interface in order to interact between nodes through the ethernet.

6. Beetbox

The description from this projects website is as follows, "The BeetBox is a simple instrument that allows users to play drum beats by touching actual beets. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi with a capacitive touch sensor and an audio amplifier in a handmade wooden enclosure."

7. Beer Can Keyboard

In this project, beer cans replace the keys of a keyboard. The device can be plugged in to any computer and operates like any other keyboard. All you have to do is touch the cans, like you would do the keys on regular keyboards.

8. FishPi

This is a somewhat better known project. As mentioned on the website, this is a "Marine Unmanned Surface Vessel, which will ultimately be able to cross the Atlantic unaided, and take scientific measurements while doing so."

9. The Facebook enabled frying pan

This project uses a Raspberry PI board, a WI-PI connector and a 16X2 alphanumeric LCD placed inside a frying pan in order to give it connectivity to Facebook. It takes social networking to a whole new level.

10. Miniature Arcade Machine

Remember those old school arcade machines that we loved playing with? Well, this is a miniature version of that, powered by the Raspberri Pi board.

11. Sky Pi

This project aims to drop a paper plane over the North Sea. While the plane was expected to land in Holland, the main payload was expected to continue on further by itself. It wasn't quite successful, but the prospects for this one are high.
