Make a Raspberry Pi fortune teller that prints your future
Now you can shape your own destiny with this Raspberry Pi fortune teller!
The goal of this project is to print a random fortune at the push of a button using a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and this mini thermal printer from Adafruit. In this guide, I'll walk you through everything you need to get started. We'll need some specific software, the printer needs to be set up, and then we'll need to trigger our fortune-telling script with the push of a button.
