The Raspberry Pi—a computer board about the size of a credit card. But don’t be fooled by its fragile appearance; it’s much more powerful than it seems.The Raspberry Pi was developed in the United Kingdom by Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
The Raspberry Pi has become popular not just among students but also electronics hobbyists, tinkerers, computer scientists, and “kids” of all ages.
The Raspberry Pi can work as a regular computer—you can surf the web, send emails, write documents, watch videos, and so on—but that’s not its main purpose. The Pi is something that you can experiment with, hack, and play with to build your own programs and inventions. The Raspberry Pi and similar boards made it not only possible but easy to get involved in the world of electronics and programming, resulting in an outpouring of creative inventions all over the globe. Now, it’s your time to invent something.
