Microsoft’s developer site has a post and details up about how people determined to spend as little as possible on signage software and hardware could put a project together with a $45 Raspberry Pi single board computer and the new Windows 10 IoT Core operating system software.
The developer details are over my head, but the nut of it is that users could get things working with the Pi using an ARM processor (or a $145 Minnowboard using x86) and the IoT software, running stills, audio and video.
If this makes any sense to you, you can geek out on it all here …
With all the great low-cost or even free signage platforms out there, I’m not quite sure why yet more software is being written, other than as a technical challenge. But these things keep on coming.
