    A friend is running a Kickstarter for an NFC (near field communication) board that works with Raspberry Pi and Arduino. There some demo videos of cool things you can do with in the updates.

    Hope you find it interesting.

    There is a new model B (B+ I believe) out with same RAM and processor but it has 4 usb and a Micro SD instead of an SD card slot.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    I'm hoping for the C model, whenever it will come out, to support 1080p60 H264 playback. It's probably the only thing I'm missing from my OpenELEC/XBMC media center.

    @Salaman I'm in the same boat. Just google "ideas raspberry pi" and start from the top. It'll take a while ;)
    Whoops. I'm still at the same stage as I was at the end of April.

    I got the B+ Pi earlier in the week. I'm not competent with code, so got a pre-loaded MicroSD card with OpenElec. Literally plug and play, the most difficult part was assembling the case.

    I don't have any 1080p60 content to test it, but everything else works smoothly. Not that I've had much time to experiment.

    It's such a dinky wee thing though, I stuck it to the back of the telly and it just works. Delighted.

    It won't really work. I tried the Uncharted 4 trailer in 1080p60, and the playback was very choppy. According to the specs, it doesn't support it, so no surprise there.

    Most 1080p content is at 30Hz, right? That'll be fine for me.
