Uses for Raspberry Pi

by Shahiba K. Free Lancer
As we are using raspberry pi for most of our IoT Projects, I did thought that is Raspberry Pi only used for IoT projects, are there any other ways we can use the devices. Definitely yes is the answer and I have already started using Raspberry pi for lot of other things.

The simplest use for a Raspberry Pi is as a desktop computer.Depending on which model you buy, the Raspberry Pi is one of the world's least expensive and most versatile computers with just 512MB to 1GB of RAM and an SD card for storage. A good desktop computer can be useful, particularly for work-related tasks, but for many people space is a problem. What better computer to turn to than the box-sized Raspberry Pi.

Media Center

We will learn how to set up Raspberry Pi as entertainment center solution (Kodi was XBMC) with the right accessories and software. Kodi is a free and open-source media player software application developed by the XBMC Foundation, a non-profit technology consortium. Kodi is available for multiple operating systems and hardware platforms, with a software 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls.

Gaming Machine

You can convert your raspberry pi in to a gaming system, do you believe it ? You should.

Welcome to RetroPie. RetroPie allows you to turn your Raspberry Piinto a retro-gaming machine. It builds upon Raspbian, EmulationStation, RetroArch and many other projects to enable you to play your favorite Arcade, home-console, and classic PC games with the minimum set-up. For power users it also provides a large variety of configuration tools to customize the system as you want.

Web server

Apache is a popular web server application you can install on the Raspberry Pi to allow it to serve web pages.On its own, Apache can serve HTML files over HTTP, and with additional modules can serve dynamic web pages using scripting languages such as PHP.
