This is a great time for personal tech and the Linux 'Desktop'.
» Orange Matchbox - The Series is a set of posts I will be putting here to describe my fun time with the Snappy Ubuntu-powered Raspberry Pi dubbed Orange Matchbox.
» The hardware
In this post I'd like to briefly showcase what the Orange Matchbox is, as delivered (unfortunately I don't have photos of the original awesome paper-lunch-bag packaging).
— 1. Raspberry in this setup is the Pi 2 Model B https://goo.gl/kXM6MI
— 2. Orange is a engraved, customized Ubuntu-Orange Pibow case from Pimoroni http://goo.gl/Ejdwhq
— 3. Glow - a sprinkle of colour from the Pimoroni Piglow http://goo.gl/dwdpeM
— 4. Brains - Ubuntu Snappy preloaded on a 8GB microSD card http://goo.gl/AfS5Ff
Matches are nowhere to be found, not sure if a supply chain issue ;).
» That's it for today. It's really nice that even the case came in a some-assembly-required, always fun to build something. Watch this space for next posts in which I will describe the software and what I'm doing with all of this.
