    Gday guys
    im wondering if its possible to run simtools on a raspberry pi so I can use it to run motion on an xbox or play station

    what do you guys think
    I thought once it was setup you would be able to install it into a control box with no need for a monitor..it would be a simple power the pi set simtools to open with windows or whatever the pi runs then start the xbox and away you go ..thats my idea tell me if im dreaming lololol
    cheers guys

    Something like the LattePanda would likely be a better choice, as it is Intel based, runs full Win 10 OS and also includes an integrated Arduino compatible co-processor: https://www.dfrobot.com/category-177.html

    While you can get Windows IOT Core for Raspberry pi it is ARM based and not a full Win 10 OS.
