Raspberry Pi enthusiasts might be interested in a new Raspberry Pi project which is being created by Wellington Duraes, Senior Program Manager for Microsoft in the form of the TV Time Machine.
Which uses a Raspberry Pi together with some some readily available television content to create a TV Time Machine that provides a glimpse of the days of classic, monochrome viewing.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Raspberry Pi project which has been published to the hackster.io website with full instructions on how to create your very own.
Wellington Duraes explains more about the inspiration behind his Raspberry Pi project :
￼￼I was always fascinated by black & white TV’s but finding one in good conditions is both hard and very expensive. That’s when I decided to build my own TV. While this is not the “real deal”, building it was a blast. I joined a local Maker community (Snohomish County Makers in Everett, WA) and they helped me with the wooden cabinet building part. Electronics here are the easiest part, this is basically a Raspberry Pi 2 playing videos in an infinite loop from a flashdrive, a monitor and a PC speaker.
