Can't wait for a shiny new Ninja Block? If you have a Raspberry Pi and have basic familiarity with Linux, you can use your Raspberry Pi as a Ninja Block (of sorts)!
This is very experimental, if you give it a go, please join the Raspberry Pi group.
To get started, follow these instructions:
1. Download Ninja Blocks image here.
2. Write the Ninja Blocks image to your SD card and install it in your Raspberry Pi. If you're not sure how to do this, click here for further instructions.
3. Plug the Raspberry Pi into your router.
4. SSH to your raspberry pi by typing "ssh raspberrypi.local" into your terminal. If you're unable to access the raspberry pi, you might have to reference your router's DHCP lease table. Once you're in, the default username is "pi" and the password is "raspberry."
5. Execute the "getserial" command. This will be your Ninja Block's unique ID-- store or write this down because you will need it later to register!
6. Point your browser here and sign up for an invite.
7. Once you have an invite, register on the site at https://a.ninja.is/born 8. After you've registered and logged onto the site, click on the "pair block" in the upper right.
9. Enter the serial code you noted earlier.
10. If everything worked you should see the icon on the far right turn green!
11. Check out our new rules interface by clicking the gear icon on the left and have fun!
