We’ve seen a few Raspberry Pi TVs in the past, including this retro TV simulator and The Simpsons-themed TV that plays episodes from the animated sitcom. But this is the first time we’ve seen a Pi-powered TV dedicated to playing live streams from streamers. Created by a maker named Bob (also known by his handle Rsheldiii), this custom Twitch TV can be programmed to start playing any live stream of choice as soon as it’s active.
The hardware is housed inside a purple, 3D-printed shell resembling the twitch.tv logo. Bob configured the system to play in real-time at full volume when a stream begins.
In the project details, Bob doesn’t specify the exact model of Raspberry Pi used in the project. However, you could recreate it using something as new as a Raspberry Pi 4 or even something smaller like a Raspberry Pi Zero. It would help to use something with built-in Wi-Fi support, but you could use a regular Pi Zero with a USB to Ethernet adapter.
