Raspberry Pi sub-$35 computer hits eBay for over $2,300

Raspberry Pi sub-$35 computer hits eBay for over $2,300

Sales of the Raspberry Pi computer have begun, albeit on a small scale, with ten of the first $35 boards being allotted to eBay where initial bidding has already exceeded £1,500 ($2,325). Powered by an ARM11 700MHz chip capable of running Quake III, general sales will begin in around a month according to the Raspberry Pi foundation, meaning early-adopters are willing to pay a hefty mark-up to grab one of the initial dev units.

Raspberry Pi $25 USD computer coming in January

Raspberry Pi $25 USD computer coming in January

We've spoken about the Raspberry Pi computer a few times before, earlier this year it seeming to get closer and closer to a real release: the time is now essentially set in stone, and the ultra-cheap PC is upon us: $25 for Linux on an ARM processor toting computer with USB, HDMI out, video and audio out, and an SD Card slot, coming this January! Can you imagine such a thing? Its creators have spoken again of this magical device as being available in the first month of 2012 with only tiny software and hardware testing required before that release date - joy!

$25 Raspberry Pi computer runs Quake III

When I hear cheap computer I think $300 or so. When talking about the Raspberry Pi computer cheap means REALLY cheap at about $25. That $25 price is obviously the goal of the project that aims at delivering the really cheap computers to the emerging markets. The company producing the little computer has unveiled a prototype and offered up a shot of the machine along with a video of it running a game.

Raspberry Pi $25 USB-Sized Computer Nearly Ready for Public Release

Raspberry Pi $25 USB-Sized Computer Nearly Ready for Public Release

Before we begin speaking about how awesome it is that the Raspberry Pi Alpha version boards are ready for shipping, it would be remiss of us not to explain what Raspberry Pi is in the first place. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a group which is preparing to release a single-board computer for right around $25 USD (aka approximately £ 15 GBP) meant to stimulate basic computer science in schools around the world. What's happening this weekend is that we're being treated to a video filmed by Eben Upton, Director of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, as he shows of the newly shipped alpha boards for this project.

Google Glass inspired project brings real-time translation

Google Glass inspired project brings real-time translation

This week the inventor known as Will Powell has created a project with heads-up display technology in mind - near real time translation, right up to the mind's eye. If there's one thing Google's Project Glass has done for the world - even though it's not a product many of us can own quite yet - it's to inspire developers and technicians around the world. What Powell has done here is to take several components and combine them to create a pair of glasses that shows what a person has said in text right after they've said it - translated into any language you like.

Pirate Bay Torrent drones could soar over piracy rules

Pirate Bay Torrent drones could soar over piracy rules

High-profile torrent site The Pirate Bay has threatened to take its content to the skies, with the perhaps tongue-in-cheek suggestion of GPS-controlled wireless drones that could automatically host nodes. The site's odd suggestion is using low-power, compact computers like Raspberry Pi, guided by GPS and connected using cheap wireless systems, floated "some kilometers" so that takedowns will need to involve physical destruction by planes.

Many people want to get music into the various rooms of their home or office. The catch for some people is that they don’t want the speakers to be obvious. You can cut the walls or ceiling to install speakers, but cutting isn't an option for some. This is where a product like Soundwall comes in.

Wolfram Language wants to revolutionize coding

Wolfram Language wants to revolutionize coding

Wolfram Alpha has spawned a new symbolic programming language, Wolfram Language, with Stephen Wolfram revealing what he promises is the "most productive" way to create code. As with Wolfram Alpha search, which uses contextual awareness to answer questions, Wolfram Language is a "knowledge-based language", its inventor claims, giving the language itself continually-curated awareness of the world it exists in and how things like interfaces are structured, allowing even those with no prior programming experience the opportunity to build complex apps.
