Thank you for the resteem, a lot of time is going into this project, thank you for noticing and supporting.

Very much appreciated

I also resteemed. Interesting to see where you'll take this project.

Thank you for your reply,

Many new things are on the planning and worked on and a resteem helps a lot with the promotional part of the project, thanks !

Brilliant stuff!

( found your project due to @paulag resteem )

:) Thank you @abh12345

I can't wait to leave youtube and their tyrany for steemit!

Thanks for your reply and lighting up the LED, and i totally agree with you.

looks fab. can i post from it yet?

Thanks for your reply and lighting up the leds,

At this moment It is not (yet) possible to post to Steemit with the SteemPi interface.

Dude are you going to sell these? This is cool as hell!!!. I'm just seeing this.

Thanks you for your comment and interest :) , at the moment they are not for sale as a complete set but, you could order the parts online, i am looking into options to sell boards and sets but at the moment this is not a option. and the most cheap option will be to build and install it by yourself (it is not to difficult and in the SteemPi Discord server you can get support if needed)

I think I might buy a raspberry pi just to try this out. Seems awesome!!!

Thank you :)


Looks great, do you need help with QA Testing? I have R2, R0 and couple R3 that I can run it on.

Thanks for your reply, would be awesome if you could test it on a Raspberry Pi 3. please connect with me in the SteemPi Discord chat.

done and done! :)

This quiet im waiting for a demonstration video

I have been looking at the Pi, this gives me all the more reason to get one. I resteemed as well.

this is a great idea man, what else are you planing with this?

On the planning are more features related to:

  • Steemit
  • Crypto currency
  • Entertainment
  • Smarthome

(In more detail, things recently looked into: Kodi, Emulation station, streaming video, digital assistant features and more Steemit content, charts and statistics.)

Soon more :) Thank you for your reply

Yea i was wondering about the Kodi cause that would be awesome if you included that.

Love it! Following for more great content!

Upped my friend! I hope you do well with this post as you are sharing great technology!

Thank you for lighting up the leds and day with your comment :) always nice to get your reply :)

Very intriguing, I think you may be on to something big. @ironshield

You getting to verion 2 already! How cool to see! I still need to buy myself a raspberry PI. It is now on my list to do for the next months.

That is impressive! Gonna try it out with my Pi this weekend! But first I need to get some LEDs.

Thanks and would be very cool if you would give it a try, for the leds you could look for small flashlight keychain, home decoration, cheap toys or the dollar shop to salvage LED(s) from.

This sounds so cool - didn't know anything about it! Thanks for taking on this project! Looks like I've got a reason to dig my second pi out now.

And thanks for reblogging my posts and sharing them on the discord channel. What a thrill!

this is brilliant!

Thank you:)

These are amazing projects, Keep up the great work!

Thank you :)

Good stuff!

Thank you :)
