All,

If anyone would like to try this using a PC instead of a Raspberry Pi or Beagle Bone. 

I am willing to create a Virtual Machine that will run on the free Virtualbox software to emulate all of the functionality of the RPi/BBB for anyone to try it on their own.  

This would allow comments, constructive criticism, and suggestions for improvement to the project.

If there is interest, I will whip up a virtual machine and post it to my blog with instructions on how to get up and running.

Best Regards,
Elias Basse
