    use the pifm library (which uses gpio pins switching to radiate radio waves!) for something cool, like jammin drive thru headsets while ordering at McUKnowWhere.. RadioTrolling durring lunchbreak? lol

    Run your own server with open-source cloud software or your own development projects

    I used mine with a spibox case and noir camera for a mini camera to see my door, was also going to set one up to notify my when my laundry was done but don't have the time or resources. I would suggest browsing hackaday and seeing if any of those projects interest you!

    Turn a quadcopter into a pet!
    Add facial recognition, mapping, and a squirtgun.
    Could also relay voice commands to a server so it obeys ^^

    @DeadBladeLord not stuck with anything yet except about four four terabyte hdds. My initial plan was to find some kind of sata expansion board for five 8tb wd reds on an rpi 3 but have had no luck

    maybe jamming.but theres plenty if other fun pifm possibilities , and if you have a amature radio license (as I do) it possible to keep it "legal". But keep in mind most things that are fun in life are "illegal" and what is "illegal" today may not be tommorow.

    Install retropie and use it to play old games emulated. That's what I'm currently using mine for.
