Time for some Raspberry pi !
But first, what is a raspberry pi ?
Here is the wikipedia answer:
The Foundation provides Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions for download. Also planned are tools for supporting Python as the main programming language, with support for BBC BASIC, (As “Brandy Basic”, the BBC BASIC clone), C, and Perl.
Well, to put it simple. A raspberry pi is a little microchip (or a Plug Computer) that can runs linux and HD video. There are two model who are almost the same (model A and B, the B got a second usb port and an ethernet controller).
Aw, by the way you must be thinking. What is gpio ?
Go go wikipedia :
Again, to put it simple. GPIO are pins that let you be able to plug motors, lcd, led !
Yes, yes we’ll try to do it together !
Well I think you already understood that theses pages are by a noob for noobs, I will try to explain things as simple as possible so everyone can understand it, so feel free to give advise or ask if you didn’t understand something !
