Raspberry Pi

Have you seen one of these? It’s an open source $30 computer. With a little Python code and some basic wiring thru its GPIO port I plan to rig this to the Super Chexx to detect when a goal is scored and play an mp3 like a horn from any of the NHL team arenas. If I can get it working I’m going to really geek it out and try to install some left-over iPhone cameras that are running a 5 second loop which the Python script will grab after a score. The idea being to make a instant replay of the last 5 seconds to show the goal. I’d like to redo the score board to include a small LCD so I can play the clips on the new board.
