Back in late February I saw this post on the Raspberry Pi site. http://www.raspberrypi.org/school-weather-station-...They had created Raspberry Pi Weather Stations for Schools. I totally wanted one! But at that time ...
Raspberry Pi is a tiny, cheap (25 quid!!) computer for children. It's a BBC Micro for the twenty-first century - something for children to tinker with and program. Could this revolutionise our relationship with computers?
Do you know about RaspberryPi? It's a $35 computer that runs a stripped down version of Linux called Fedora ARM. Basically, it is the guts of a smartphone. It has two USB ports, HD video out. You supply the keyboard, mouse, and monitor. It is for teaching kids to program, experiment and invent new computing technologies. Check it out at www.raspberrypi.org
We played a little trick on our Twitter followers yesterday and some of them fell for it. Whoops. Fancy seeing the Raspberry Pi website take on a slightly different skin? Follow the link below, or add ?fool to the end of any raspberrypi.org URL. #thearduinoshop
