Celebrate Pi Day

Raspberry Pi is just hitting its one-year anniversary on the market according to Celebrate Pi Day With These 9 High-Tech Raspberry Pi Hacks article and already eclipsing a million units sold. According to another article one-year anniversary was it few days go already.

Celebrate Pi Day With These 9 High-Tech Raspberry Pi Hacks tells that Raspberry Pi computer board continues to grow as the maker’s platform of choice. Celebrate Pi Day With These 9 High-Tech Raspberry Pi Hacks article shows several interesting applications for this tiny computer board.

    Raspberry Portable: Turning a Raspberry Pi into a full-fledged portable PC

    The Raspberry Pi is a $35 computer board that’s about the size of a pack of cards. It’s not the fastest PC around, and it doesn’t even come with a case — but you can build some pretty nifty projects from the little computer — including a portable, battery-powered PC with a tiny keyboard and display.

    SK Pang Electronics took a few off-the-shelf components, attached them to a custom, laser-cut base, and ended up with a portable Linux PC that you can carry like a briefcase.

    Portable Raspberry Pi

    This project is a portable Raspberry Pi computer.

    It uses standard off the shelf hardware. The LCD is a low cost TFT monitor used in car reverse camera. The monitor has a video input but the supply is 12v. This needs to be modify to accept 5v from the batter pack. The battery pack is a standard portable USB charger.

    Free Touchscreen in cheap car back-up monitor for Raspberry Pi

    portable Pi and noticed the same screen as mine and all looked nice. The thing I wanted to do is to modify my screen as well to work off of 5V. I followed that guide and the hack was done.

    I have a great find to share with everyone, I found a resistive touchscreen sensor embeded in a cheap car back-up monitor that i was using for the Raspberry Pi.

    Do the ‘getting started’ guides make your first slice of Pi more tasty?

    The Raspberry Pi has been out for just over a year now. It has undergone a couple of revisions during that time, most recently around October 2012, but a short while ago I decided it was time I ought to try it out and see what the diminutive, Linux-running micro can do.

    World’s Cheapest Computer Finally Makes It To The US Market

    The Raspberry Pi Foundation announced that its $25 Model A computer is now available for purchase in the United States through the electronics reseller Allied Electronics.

    The model A is a ten dollar price cut from Raspberry Pi’s original Model B mini computer.

    The Raspberry Pi founder said the not-for-profit organization has sold the popular computers to buyers around the world, even in the emerging markets of Africa.

    “It’s very strong in South Africa,” he told TechCrunch. “We’re looking to use South Africa as a springboard to increasingly affluent per capita cities of sub-Saharan Africa.”

    Upton has said that he founded Raspberry Pi with the intent of providing a computer platform that enables kids to learn how to write computer code. The device’s affordable price in combination with the interconnectedness of the Internet means that the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates could emerge from anywhere in the world, regardless of socioeconomic status.

    Hmm, cool stuff, seems a bit outdated but it works. Hopefully some of the Raspberry Pi stuff gets easier to do. Some crazy projects

    Baked in Britain, the millionth Raspberry Pi
    7 October 2013 Last updated at 23:17 GMT

    For British computing this is quite a day. The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced that a million of the tiny cheap computers aimed at transforming education have now been made in the UK.

    When the Pi was launched in February last year, the device was made in China. But a few months on, production was brought home to Sony’s Pencoed factory in South Wales.

    The Pi has been exported around the world and looks set to become the best-selling British computer since the 1980s – though as it retails at about £30, it will never earn the revenues that the likes of the ZX Spectrum and the BBC Micro achieved.

    “I remember being told this was an unsaleable product,” says Upton, satisfied at having proved the doubters wrong. “But we’ve already surpassed the sales of the BBC Micro – my childhood computer. There was a latent need for something like this.”
