No, not a "Never Ending Pie-Throwing Robot" (see http://adventuretime.wikia.com/wiki/Neptr) , rather a "Never Ending Pi Tech Radio"

It's a Raspberry Pi acting as a cheap networked music player with OpenElec XBMC.

  • Brains: Raspberry Pi - stolen (temporarily, I hope) from BMO)
  • Screen: IBM P.O.S. VGA monitor with USB touchscreen (but doesn't work yet) - used to be Snackspace 2.0!
  • Wifi: EDUP 802.11n Nano - stolen (temporarily, I hope) from BMO)
  • Hub: powered hub - stolen (temporarily, I hope) from BMO)
  • Wires: so many wires!
  • Housing: first generation - signage thermoplastic as used on BMO - lots of hotmelt glue

Michael Erskine (talk) 10:37, 31 January 2014 (EST) Initial tests look good although touchscreen under OpenELEC is proving troublesome - rumor has it there's no Xorg on OpenElec!!!!
