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

$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.

Imagination launches MIPS Creator CI20 dev board

Imagination launches MIPS Creator CI20 dev board

When it comes to "small computers", which covers anything from embedded systems to mobile devices, ARM, and to some extent Intel, are probably the best known names. But that doesn't mean they're the only game in town. The MIPS architecture, which powers an equally big number of embedded systems, including game consoles, is also a contender. Developers for those systems now have their own board to play around and experiment with, now that Imagination has released its own Creator CI20 as part of its programme to hook in more developers and users.

Hack turns ATM into DOOM arcade machine

Hack turns ATM into DOOM arcade machine

There is this long standing gamer belief that a computer is not a computer unless it can run, and play, DOOM. Taking that philosophy to heart, two Australian hackers have embarked on a perilous journey to install DOOM on one machine where you least expect to see it: a cash-dispensing ATM.
