Now I need to decide on a clever hack to do with it.

Any suggestions?

hmmm... off the top of my head - turn it into a better Lego mindstorms brick?

I'm installing this distro:
http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-raspberry-pi-educational-linux-distro/occidentalis-v0-dot-1


Occidentalis v0.1. Rubus occidentalis is the black raspberry. It is derived from Raspbian Wheezy July 15

Raspbian is a raspberry-pi version of debian. I love debian.
It has specific hardware hacking features on top of basic debian.

These things look super cool. I just ordered 2 of them. They are on backorder so I suspect it will be a few months before I see them. Maybe a fun Christmas present for my oldest boy.

Mine was "backordered" too, but I got it in under 2 weeks.

Now this looks like a great hack:

http://davidhunt.ie/?p=2641

"So what I’ve done is take an old (broken) battery grip that I had lying around (for my Canon 5D Mark II), and made a few modifications to it so I could fit the Raspberry Pi SBC (Single Board Computer) into it. I left a few holes in the case so that I could get at the USB and network ports, and video port. it’s a fully functioning computer with a Linux Operating System (Raspbian), has 2 USB, network, video, HDMI and GPIO."

I ordered a Raspberry Pi on Sunday night from Element 14. It arrived today. Still waiting on the other bits and pieces to make it work. I bought "Raspberry Pi A Quick Start Guide" by Maik Schmidt. The possibilities seem endless.

If the Raspberry Pi is too big for you, check out the TinyDuino, which my friend's brother is trying to produce via Kickstarter.
