Make a box to fit Pi, 7 port Powered USB hub, 240V power to fit on back of LCD Monitor/TV to get rid of birds nest of wires. Add handle to box so I can carry. Oh forgot the Keyboard & Mouse. Need Buffered I/O with Opto isolation to drive spiky gizmos. Have installed Arduino Development on Pi but uses big swap file that will help kill SD cards but OK for the odd compile & upload to Arduino via USB.

Opps I have done something wrong and ended up with Mike Hewitt's comments down as me so I will leave his here . and back up what he has said.......... "Looks Good but too early to know. Would like to see some of the younger generation take an interest. The current membership seems to have a wealth of skills that can be passed on to help introduce technology to parents, children and young adults alike."
