Let’s wind down the weekend with some projects that didn’t quite warrant their own feature, but we think they’re still worth a look.
[Andrei Istodorescu] has been hard at work building a 7″ touch-screen rig which runs XBMC. It may be upside-down, but the Raspberry Pi board which is front and center is still easily recognizable.
