Can we download other software to the Piper?


We want to download other programs, such as some games from the Google Play store or Steam. We thought we had managed to download and install a game from Google Play, but can’t find it on the Piper. I am really hoping this computer can be more of a true computer and not just a Minecraft machine.


Have you exited to the desktop and seen what is preloaded on teh raspberry Pi (the heart of Piper)? You can load Scratch, Wolfram Alpha, Sonic to name a few. You can even get another SD card and turn it into a media server.

Go take a look at the > Raspberry Pi Foundation’s webside to see all the things you can do


Another cool use: turning it into a retro console emulator:
