What can/should I do with a spare Pi 3 (That isn't RetroLag)

by fuctfuct Sat Feb 20, 2021 5:57 am

Found a model B 1.2 in my hoard. Can't think of anything to do with it, lol.

Turn it into a motion detection / live feed camera?

Maybe actually. Could use cheap laptop internal cameras. Only problem is USB cable length. Any other dirt cheap way to acquire cameras?

There's really cheap camera modules you can get for the Raspberry Pi.

Yea, I saw those, but can you run more than one? Laptop replacement/salvaged cams are not much more/free. Be cool to have a few of them. They are all USB though :(

Wish I had one running when the police were here last year. Call was totally unrelated to me, or my apartment, but 3 of them just barged their way in my place anyways. After I told them they weren't welcome. None of them put it in their reports so my complaint went nowhere.
