  • Kodi/media player
  • Emulator box for games with RetroPie or whatever else you like
  • Camera controller for a 3d scanner, stop-motion, etc.
  • FM transmitter
  • Web server

That's what I've used my 3Bs for apart from going in the Pi-Top enclosure - they do a pretty good job anyways as long as it isn't too high demand of a task. Some of them like say RetroPie and Kodi can go together as they're both on a Debian (or Raspbian) base which makes it nice and easy, just depends on the size of your SD cards.

OOOOOh link me to the FM transmitter stuff!

My next project will be a RasPi3 SDR Scanner.
Not exactly like this one but quite similar.

HAHA MINE USED TO BE ONE. I love SDR technology. I just use my Windows 10 for it. The Pi struggles a lot at times when running it as a server.

You mean resource/performance wise? Even the RaspberryPi3? That's a shame. Just getting into SDR. Stressed

SDRsharp is the best software to be completely honest. I am thinking about getting an upgraded SDR.

There's a few routes you can go, either the easy way for a simple local FM broadcast like this MagPi article describes:
https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/raspbe...ansmitter/

Or a bit more involved (the way I went) as-shown by KD0CQ here to make an effective SDR transceiver with a bit of work:
http://www.kd0cq.com/2017/02/raspi-3-mod...i-antenna/

I've tried multiple attempts at using my Pi as an SDR but at the end of the day compared to my daily drivers, mainly a Genesis G11 and G59, it just doesn't work nearly as well (although it is doable) - just please, as KD0CQ says, put some sort of filter on if you're going to transmit with a design like they posted or else you'll probably get the FCC to notice you which is never going to be a fun time.

I've been running from the FCC like a fugitive. The local Walmart has literal agents on standby because of me. Lmao.
