Business Insider recently ran a Raspberry Pi feature highlighting some projects from the Adafruit Learning System:

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost computer board and a maker’s dream come true.
Originally conceived as an educational product for removing as many barriers as possible for teaching people to program, Pi has been popping up in inventive creations to make all kinds of electronic doodads come to life.

Check out these three Adafruit Learning System projects from the article!

Mine your Bitcoins with a dedicated device.

Now you can mine your Bitcoins on a dedicated Raspberry Pi rig. It’s got an LED readout to tell you how well it’s working and how much Bitcoin it’s mined. It uses USB-based mining processors since the Pi’s processor isn’t as capable as dedicated miners.

Anonymize your web traffic with a Tor proxy:

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a dedicated Tor proxy. By bundling this thing with your Wi-Fi router, it will disperse your Internet traffic around the globe such that it can’t be traced to you.

Build a time machine!

Obviously not a real time machine, but this series of LED displays is driven by a Raspberry Pi hidden inside. A must for Back to the Future fans.
