I was looking for diy project for NAS (Network Access Storage) when I came across many articles about building up NAS using Raspberry Pi. I read more and more about Raspberry Pi, and then realized that Raspberry Pi is more than a just small sized computer as what I’ve thought earlier.
Basically, Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized single-board computer, but with the GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) on the board, it opens up lots of possibilities of diy electronic projects.
In order to get started with the Raspberry Pi, you will need,
- Raspberry Pi 3 board
- Power Supply
- Micro SD card
- HDMI Cable to Monitor
- Raspberry Pi case
- Heat Sink
When we put them all together, you will get,
A computer at the size of a credit card…
…and curiosity 🙂
