    I would recommend a Pi3 for RetroPie - the original Pi struggles with some of the more powerful consoles (PSX, DC etc.)

    I have started to utilise mine recently.

    Bought an Energenie Pi Hat and now control sockets through Alexa with IFTTT.
    Set up one as a VPN for the lads on the rigs so they can get access to betting sites etdc
    Got another couple acting as Pi Security Cameras with PIR's which automatically arm and disarm the service based on detection of your MAC address of your phone(s) - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Set up an Arcade machine running RetroPi and now going to have a bash of setting up Alexa in the car using one to control radio/music and control stuff away from the house.

    Lot's of life in them and Google has just started a division working on Pi projects which should create some useful stuff.

    My retropie arcade machine is going strong and used pretty much daily. I never finished it off (of course) and the missus is still planning some artwork for the sides but I love it and it was one of the best 'from scratch' projects I've done.
