Raspberry Pi gets launched into atmosphere to take near-space pictures

The Rapsberry Pi is an impressive mini-computer we saw launch recently, and it's already won the hearts of many. An individual from the UK named Dave Akerman was apparently looking to have a real adventure with his new Pi, so he strapped the gadget to a weather balloon for it to be sent up into Earth's atmosphere to take pictures from near-space. And it actually did quite well. The photos can be viewed on Akerman's Flickr account.

Motorola Lapdock gets new life with wave of mini-PCs

Another bit of evidence that the internet has brought us closer to a hive-mind mentality than ever before: several bright young owners of the Motorola Lapdock have purchased ultra-cheap miniature PCs such as the Raspberry Pi and have hooked it up for new greatness. Over at Liliputing, the Raspberry Pi ultra-inexpensive computer is just one of several that have been hooked up into the Motorola Lapdock - an older version of the one we reviewed several months ago. There's also the MK802 PC on a stick as well, and more too!
