A computer software development company has come up with an easy way to build the perfect home theater setup for your favourite games.
Raspberry Pi computer software developer Arnaud LeBlanc said his team was working on a set-up for the Raspberry Pi computer that would enable anyone to easily build a virtual home theater.
Raspbian OS – a free operating system for Raspberry Pi computers – is available to download from the RaspberryPi.com website and can be used to build any system that can run a Raspberry Pi.
RipleyPi – which LeBlac’s team has named RipleyPi in homage to the late British television personality Ripley – is based on the popular Raspberry Pi microcomputer.
LeBlanc’s team, which includes members from the software firm Pixonic, has created a set of software components that will enable anyone who wants to install RipleyPixels hardware to do so.
RaptorPi – as the project is called – is a Raspberry Pis based system that will allow anyone with an internet connection to download Ripley Pi components and install them on their own computer.
To install Ripleys Pi components on a RaspberryPi, a user needs to first install the software components.
Then, to use the components, the user needs an internet access device, a keyboard and mouse, and a HDMI port.
A Raspberry Pi also comes with a built-in web browser, a camera, microphone and a sound card, which can be plugged into a TV, gaming console or a USB audio interface to create a home theater system.
RipsPi will be launched in the second quarter of 2017 and will cost around £70 ($89).
