One Pi + One Nerd = One Digital Sign For Kitchen

January 20, 2014 by Dave Haynes


San Francisco engineer/developer Brendan Nee got himself a little sub-$50 Raspberry Pi micro PC, played around with it, and came up with a real-time transit arrivals display … for his kitchen.

Writes Nee on his blog:

This shows the real-time arrival predictions for the transit routes near me, a map of the stops, the weather, and recent tweets from my roommates.

Cost him less than $60, unless you count the old monitor. Details here …

For Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, there is a good primer just put on ReadWriteWeb.
