The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It was developed for use in teaching computer programming to children, who are now using it in schools, at code clubs and at home. Its users have given it thousands of other applications, from near-space weather balloons to baby monitors to industrial applications, and its cheapness, robustness and low power consumption have sparked interest in the developing world.
The Raspberry Pi Model B costs $35, plus local taxes and shipping. The Model A, a low-power-consumption, stripped-down version of the Model B, is now available at a base price of $25.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK registered charity (Registration Number 1129409) which builds and develops the Raspberry Pi. It exists to promote the study of computer science, especially among children and teenagers, and aims to make learning programming fun again.
