Um... I'm not quite clear on why you're asking this here? Are you having problems locating more appropriate resources?JmanP wrote:The unfortunate side is when watching the videos they speak about "Raspberry PI" And other components that I have no clue what they are.

It's essentially a compact all in one motherboard providing HDMI out, an ethernet connection, usb connections, and a multi purpose 40 pin header with a programmable input/output interface (for lights, pushbuttons, and serial connections amongs other things). It's inexpensive and low power, uses SD Card memory for flexibility, and has prebuilt images for this sort of work (as well as other things) which can be copied straight to the memory card then run. All in all, it's a very strong candidate.
As much is already prepared for you, you can buy a Raspberry Pi board (probably a Pi 3) and begin testing software quickly. You may wish to only modify the case to fit the hardware but still provide a full suite of USB and ethernet jacks, or perhaps you want to fully stealth the build so it's operable with the controllers and existing case buttons and looks totally stock. Both software and hardware is very accessible, there's not too much it can't do or be made to do within the performance limits of the CPU.
There's other options you may wish to try including compact Windows motherboards, but the price to begin with a Pi 3 is so low and the versatility so high, I think it's worth investigating at least before choosing something else.
I would expect such specifications to be thoroughly documented in multiple places. This is hardly an obscure piece of equipment.JmanP wrote:the measurements for the Pi board.
