This is a great idea. I am just left wondering what the point if a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard is now. Do they even know Bluetooth exist? What does this even do other than hold the iPad at eye level. If they take off all the electronic parts they have a nice iPad doc. If you have the money to buy a iPad then you mush have the money to buy a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. So I am left wondering where is the real market for this great idea?

London teacher +Lenny Dutton shares her Picademy highlights and her plans for the classroom, including transforming it into a maker space: an exciting post about our free professional development experience last week. Notice the Raspberry Pi Certified Educator badge on her blog!

We nearly missed this month's MagPi amid the blur of new website, new compute module and everything else - don't make the same mistake! April's issue has solar panels that track the sun, Internet-enabled garage doors, the Laika Explorer I/O device, competitions, offers and more.

Have you met Raspberry Pi Kid? She's a seventh-grade student whose blog http://raspberrypikid.wordpress.com/ is an excellent tour of fun stuff you can do with your Pi. Lately she's been helping with her school's Kickstarter campaign - they want to set up a Raspberry Pi makerspace for their students. Check it out:

Agreed +Rick Berry. Myself and 2 other "programmer dads" started a programming class at my son's school. There is easy to follow curriculum via http://learn.code.org we are using it to teach programming to 3-6th graders. Thinking about doing a more advanced class afterwards using my pi.

I think lifehacker is more an accurate description, not DIY hacker

I'm currently working on an autonomous concept 30 RC gas helicopter, I'm hacking the code like I did in the Unix days that's what a true hacker is, I code out of my head, please do not stereotype us as the same

Eben you should know the difference

What the average user is doing is cracking code, throwing it into a blender hitting frape, and hope it works, if it does not, copy> paste> lather> rinse> repeat

Introduction

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.
