    £4 !!! <------------- FOUR POUNDS!

    If you want the 'Essential Kit' it is an extra £6 so £10 (£12.50 delivered) in total, but £4!

    I am going to say I doubt it.. I am thinking I will use this as a Door Bell or something similar powered off Solar Power. It is not going to run Subsonic very well which is what I use my 2 for.

    I actually have a use for mine, well 2 if I can get another one when they come back in stock.

    Saw a couple of Doorbell projects. You hook one up to the Wireless door bell receiver and it then sends notifications to your phone and other Pi's in listening mode. They can then play an alert.

    This is for the Summer when we are in the garden. if we are hosting a BBQ and waiting for guests, it is ideal. Geeky, not really necessary but cool.

    I'm also thinking this is perfect for a mame machine, built into a joystick like one of the old Hori arcade sticks!

    obviously it's not going to do N64 or dream cast but should tackle most mame, Snes, mega drive stuff.
