Better Late Than Never – the Raspberry Pi

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

  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Monitor
  • HDMI Cable to Monitor

Optional :

  • 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 🙂
