1940’s TV, Resurected With Raspberry Pi

Andy Brown has been working on a project to re-create a 1940s TV using a set he found in a barn a few years ago, and a Raspberry Pi. The TV plays period programs from a USB hard drive (it can also stream content from the internet), and will be part of a display at Making the Best, the Brown family’s shop in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. Video first from different stages in the project’s development, then some explanatory notes from Andy.

I think this was a great idea to restore a television using the Raspberry Pi, it really shows one of the many possibilities of the Raspberry Pi.
