Computer in your pocket? Rasberry Pi makes it possible

#1
Recently, a neat device called the Rasberry Pi arrived on the technology scene. It's literally a pocket sized computer capable of running a full installation of Linux. It's fairly modest (don't expect dual-core 3.3ghz CPUs), but more than capable of doing many basic things, including running printer servers, serving as a web server for static content, or if you have a keyboard, mouse, and monitor, literally serving as a home computer.

The cost is also pretty impressive. $25/35 is all it will cost, depending on whether you want 256MB or 512MB of RAM. I haven't purchased mine yet, but I definitely think these little devices seem pretty flexible, especially at their low cost. I plan on getting one as soon as I get the money together for one. In my opinion, it's a lot of power for the price of a microcontroller. Big Grin

I have enough technology for now. Maybe down the road I'll consider it. Tongue

Or you could purchase one of those usb sticks with Android on them... They act like mini-PCs... I don't find the use for one right now... Maybe if you travel a lot or something like that...

The Pi definitely is an interesting concept... But not something I'd really use tbh Tongue.
I mod Paradox games. Click here to see my many adventures in doing that.

it's a raspberry pi 3 that's at the core of my wearable computer right now, as well as a lot of other mods around my house, I've been using individual pi zeroes and such to DIY smart house upgrades Big Grin
