Learn to program in Scratch and Python with the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Essentials Kit. This kit contains everything you need to transform the Raspberry Pi into a media player or mini computer the size of a credit card. The only things you need are an HDMI cable, a keyboard with mouse, and a screen.
What do you need to do?
- Connect the device to your TV via an HDMI cable. The graphic chip and the Broadcom BCM2837 processor make the Pi 3 powerful enough to be able to convert it into a media player.
- Connect the mouse and keyboard via USB* and place the SD card with the software you want to install, such as Kodi or PLEX.
- Connect your media center to your hard drive via 1 of the 4 USB ports or wirelessly with the NAS, and stream videos in high resolution.
After installation, you can operate the media player via your TV's remote control or via an app on your smart phone. You'll no longer need the keyboard as a result.
*The Raspberry Pi 3 has integrated Bluetooth. Unlike the WiFi antenna, this isn't automatically activated.
