Flux Capacitor Electronics

Arduino vs. Raspberry Pi

Sometime after I started work on my second flux capacitor, I became aware of the Raspberry Pi, a new entry into the micro controller world. At first the raspberry Pi seems like overkill for what I would need it to do.
It is advertised as a "credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard." Now that's probably more than I need as all I need to do is flash some lights. But I love the thought that my Flux Capacitor could do so much more.


For now, I'm sticking with my trusty Arduino, but I'll be thinking about using the Raspberry Pi in my next project, the Burroughs B205 Computer Console.


If you are leaning towards the Arduino, as I did, Check out BangGood for a hell of a deal. BangGood For less than $25 (and that includes shipping) you can get a complete Arduino Starters Kit which includes all kinds of extra stuff. Check it out.
