Editor’s Note: This episode is a fully realized episode about the Raspberry Pi, essentially 98.5% Raspberry Pi, I promise.
Episode 5 Part 2
“I’ll have another Bigger slice of Raspberry Pi”
In this Episode: Our guests, Julie Butler and Carlos Unda talk about a great Raspberry Pi project they did as a POC “Proof of Concept” to solve a problem a company had used much more expensive hardware and software to aolcw. Carlos and Julie (both students at Erskine College) talk about their amazing project to find out if a marble was “transparent” or opaque, basically would the marble pass light or not.
Lessons Learned: Windows IoT (Internet of Things) isn’t ready for prime time. A four node Raspberry Pi cluster is faster computationally than an $800+ Windows PC.

Here is a great way I have used to redirect output so you can do video capture of your Raspberry Pi output using TinyVNC.
Here is a Raspberry Pi Starter Kick that uses Raspberry Pi 3. It comes with power supply, microSD card with Noobs, and a Clear case.
