How to make a Raspberry Pi Bitcoin mining rig - Technical

Low wattage hobby miner hardware?

I'm a fan of bitcoin and like to support the bitcoin by buying and holding BTC and operating a full node - a bitnodes unit that consumes a very minimal 2.5 Watts.
Just for fun I'd like to run a small miner drawing about say 20-50 Watts tops, I know this will not be profitable in any way but would like to do it anyway more as part of a hobby than anything.
I've mined litecoin in the past using a bank of 3 graphics cards drawing about 750W total and it was a bit impractical for me to be honest due to the noise and heat they generated and the uncompetitive price I pay for residential electricity.
I figure something that only requires minimal cooling and therefore has no heat and noise issues would be ideal. Maybe a USB miner plugged into a raspberry Pi? (since I already run a couple of Pis).
It would be nice to have something fairly competitive in terms of hashes/joule efficiency. I see the ant miner S7 currently leads by a wide margin with about 4000 MHashes/Joule. See Mining hardware comparison

Is ASICMiner worth it ?

Hello, I'm new to Bitcoin mining, I mine with my GTX 750 Ti, just for fun, just to test :) I mine at 170 Mhash/s. I have a RaspberryPi but I don't use it, and I wanted to transform it into a little Bitcoin miner with ASICMiner (ASICMiner Block Erupter USB 330MH/s Sapphire Miner) like that: http://www.amazon.com/ASICMiner-Block-Erupter-USB-Sapphire/dp/B00CUJT7TO
So I wanted to ask; Is it worth it ?
Cordially, bmx22c.

It is unequivocal that raspberry pi bitcoin mining hashrate is gaining popularity. And this popularity is changing with varying success. Bitcoin is a bubble or new technology? The world has split into two camps. Cryptocurrency is incredibly popular, from Bitcoin to Litecoin, Ethereum, and Monero. These digital assets are digital, decentralized currencies. There are two main methods for obtaining cryptocurrency: mining and purchasing. Learn all about cryptocurrency mining on the Raspberry Pi! To ensure profit, you should consider embedding an external GPU to your Raspberry Pi or find new cryptocurrencies to take advantage of the low difficulty. On the plus side, going for the Raspberry Pi means you can get started with mining some altcoins profitably with a little investment compared to gigantic ASIC miners. Raspberry Pi Bitcoin Mining with AntMiner U2 Since this guide has been written the difficulty involved in mining Bitcoin has increased significantly. The techniques presented here are no longer profitable and you will spend more on electricity than you would ever hope to gain through mining. Along with the Bitcoin mining profitability, the list of top 5 ASIC Bitcoin miners is updated frequently. A Bitcoin miner is also referred to as a Bitcoin mining rig, or a Bitcoin mining hardware device, or a Bitcoin mining machine, but we simply call them miners, or more specifically, Bitcoin miners.
