In this project I will show you how to combine a Raspberry Pi Zero with a couple of complementary parts in order to add an ambient lighting effect to your TV which enhances the viewing experience.

Top Five Raspberry Pi Zero Electronics Projects That Utilize Its Small Dimension

The Raspberry Pi has long been the enthusiast option for Do-it-yourself electronics projects. The Raspberry Pi Zero, that is around the measurements of a stick of gum, is relatively bargain and has it’s own special utilisation situations though. And listed below are 10 of our favourite projects that utilize its size.

1. Cram a Raspberry Pi Zero Inside an Old Fashioned Game Controller

It is well known the Raspberry Pi makes an amazing DIY computer game console. The setup process merely demands a jiffy, and the Raspberry Pi Zero is perfectly effective at handling older video games from the Super NES time and earlier. The whole project is better still when the whole system is inside a controller.

Working example (ahem), this project works on a Super NES controller, this one tackles the NES controller, and this one uses that good old original Xbox controller. However you plan to get it done, you will have a quite slick little DIY old-fashioned game console you could tote around just about anywhere.

2. Build a Tiny Dongle Computer

While the Pi Zero makes a neat little computer as it is, it makes a much better dongle computer. In this manner, you can attach it to some other computer you have, then it will tether itself directly so you won’t need to add in a USB or any networking.

The great thing of this project is the fact you do not need yet another mouse, display, or computer keyboard hanging out. Just jam in into your standard desktop PC and you’re ready to go.

3. Build the Globe’s Minutest (Possibly) MAME Cabinet

MAME cabinets are amazing, however, they are gigantic. For the complete opposite approach, it is possible to make use of a Raspberry Pi Zero to make one that is around as tiny as the Pi itself.

You will want a few stuff to build this sucker do the job, for example a 3D printed case, but in the end cabinet is utterly functional, indicating you’ll have the perfect desk accessory on the job.

4. Make a Motion Sensing Digicam

The Raspberry Pi is almost certainly an awesome motion sensing digital camera, but the low profile of the Pi Zero causes it to be much better.

Making use of the Raspberry Pi Zero, your motion sensing camera has a much smaller footprint, which means it can go in even tighter spaces. For example, this one mounts to your window with a pair of suction cups, which is nearly as light as it can get.

5. Play Any Simpsons Episode (or perhaps Any Television Show) Aimlessly

If you have ditched cable and gone full streaming with your media, you’ll probably still miss the days of catching a random episode of your favourite show on TV. The Raspberry Pi Zero is just about to bring that back.

In this project, they use episodes of The Simpsons placed on an Sdcard. With a custom script, you could click on a button and it plays a chapter randomly. You could increase any media you’d like here, including several shows if you really wanted, yet, The Simpsons make the perfect option.
