I picked up one of the adorable Raspberry Pi Zeros at a local store that had them on sale for $0.99! So, I decided to create an instructable of my first project to share with the world. A bookmark that remembers which exact page you stopped on!
You are going to need:
1x Book of your choosing. Paperbacks work better than hard covers.
1x Raspberry Pi Zero
1x microSD card with your chosen OS on it. I went with 8GB, but a smaller card will work as long as your OS fits.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Set Up Your Pi Zero
First, remove the Zero from its mini, anti-static zipbag.
Insert the microSD card containing your OS of choice into your Pi Zero. Personally, I used Raspbian Jessie Lite, but the great thing about this instructable is that it is cross compatible with all operating systems and versions.
Step 2: Insert Your Pi Zero Into the Book
Open your book to the chapter or page you are currently wasting memory remembering the number of. Insert the Zero into the book with USB and miniHDMI ports facing outward and the microSD facing downward. Make sure it is snug, but not shoved too deep or you could damage the book. Close your book to ensure that your new high-tech bookmark is secure. If it is, you're done! Feel free to place your book on an end table and go about your business without having to remember your chapter or page.
