New stuff for Pi 3

I remember when the iPad first came out in 2010 and I was super excited with the format. Well now I bought a capacitive touch screen for my new Pi 3 so it will be interesting to develop something for that kind of interface rather than buy a tablet. I haven’t even got the set up yet and I am pretty excited to get another one already. My initial project is just video playback so it doesn’t take advantage of the set up but it will be something I can use while setting up. I may make a browser based piece down the track. That is something I have wanted to do for a while but didn’t like the idea of a full keyboard kiosk so a touch screen makes more sense. I like seeing technology laid bare so I probably won’t hide the wires etcetera but may make a stand. I prefer things that are found to building new things. There are so many things in the world as it is. I am also not into building unless it is cardboard or paper as less manipulation is a key factor for me.
