Raspberry Pi Foundation starts selling products in its first physical store

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has started selling products in its first physical store, making it possible for customers to pop in and grab whatever they need without waiting for shipment...assuming they're in England, that is. The destination is located in Cambridge, UK, at the Grand Arcade shopping center, where it is open every day of the week.

Now you can turn Raspberry Pi into a Steam Link

Now you can turn Raspberry Pi into a Steam Link

Late last month, Valve discontinued the Steam Link and sold off its remaining stock during the Steam Autumn Sale. While the Steam Link app will continue to be supported (along with existing Steam Link hardware), the app isn't the best solution for some folks looking stream from their PC to another device. Luckily, Valve is giving users the ability to create their own Steam Link box today by bringing the app to Raspberry Pi.

Raspberry Pi Model 3 A+ is even more affordable

Raspberry Pi Model 3 A+ is even more affordable

Earlier this year, Raspberry Pi launched a new model in its 3 series dubbed the Model 3 B+. The Model 3 B+ made a few slight improvements over its predecessor but managed to keep the same $35 price tag despite the bump up in capability. Today, we're seeing yet another new model in the 3 series, but this time around, a few cutbacks have been made to bring the asking price lower.

Kano Computer Kit Touch lets kids build their own tablets

Kano Computer Kit Touch lets kids build their own tablets

Some will argue that tablets are dead but the likes of the iPads, Surface Gos, and convertibles prove otherwise. In addition, touch has become the first interaction model that most kids have these days courtesy of smartphones and, yes, tablets. So if you're going to teach them how to build their own computer, you might as well teach them to build a tablet. And that's exactly what this new DIY kit from Kano proposes to introduce the next generation to the wonderful world of technology.

Dear Nintendo: Look at this DIY 3DS-like phone

Dear Nintendo: Look at this DIY 3DS-like phone

This Spring a developer by the name of Lexie Dostal hand-constructed an Android 3DS gaming phone. This device doesn't run 3DS games from Nintendo, but it does look a whole lot like a 3DS handheld gaming system. It actually uses some salvaged 3DS parts, as it were - but it runs an open hardware Android SBC called KitePhone.

New Google AIY Kits make starting a lot easier

New Google AIY Kits make starting a lot easier

There are two things that are big in tech these days. Aside from the notch, that is. Those are DIY projects and artificial intelligence. Being a fan of both, Google found a way to combine the two to help introduce kids and adults alike to the technology and, indirectly, to Google's ecosystem. Now Google's AIY Projects, short for "AI DIY", is getting an update that makes starting much easier by combining everything you need in one, easy to setup package.

Cool things you can make with a Raspberry Pi

Cool things you can make with a Raspberry Pi

Just in time for Pi Day (March 14, a.k.a. 3.14, for the less mathematically inclined), the Raspberry Pi foundation released a new Raspberry Pi board. Of course it’s not the Raspberry Pi 4 but simply a Model B+ for the existing RPi 3. Like almost any other Pi before it, it’s a step up, though small, in performance without changing the price one bit. Being Pi Day and all, it’s perhaps the perfect time to remember, or see for the first time, some of the coolest Raspberry Pi projects around.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ boosts speed but keeps $35 price

It's been a couple of years since Raspberry Pi 3 Model B was first launched, so it's just about time for an updated model. Today, the folks behind Raspberry Pi are launching just that, introducing the world to the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. What better time to roll out a new Raspberry Pi model than Pi Day?

OpenAuto makes car smart with Raspberry Pi DIY hack

Android Auto can be installed on a Raspberry Pi unit with relative ease - and the results are pretty neat. Based on the DIY project we're having a peek at here today, the next generation in DIY automotive tech appears to be here. This system was made possible by XDA Developers user f1x, maker of an open source Android Auto head unit emulator.

Windows 10 on ARM on Raspberry Pi is off to a good start

Windows 10 on ARM on Raspberry Pi is off to a good start

Windows 10 is popping up in some odd places, like old phones and ARM boards. It’s all unofficial, of course, but it might still serve to spark some interest in taking Microsoft’s operating system to places where Microsoft itself might have given up on. We’ve seen both Windows RT and a smidgen of Windows 10 on ARM running on Lumia phones. Now Dutch developer Bas Timmer, a.k.a. @NTAuthority, has brought Windows 10, again its ARM version, to a device that Microsoft already half supports: the Raspberry Pi 3.

Raspberry Pi Zero WH adds pre-soldered 40-pin GPIO header

Raspberry Pi Zero WH adds pre-soldered 40-pin GPIO header

How much can you cram into a 2.6 in x 1.2 in circuit board? You’d presume not much, but the Raspberry Foundation is trying to prove you wrong. First, it added built-in Wi-Fi to its teeny Raspberry Pi Zero and called it the Raspberry Pi Zero W. Now it’s adding a 40-pin GPIO header on top of that and calling it, what else, the Raspberry Pi Zero WH. Now tinkerers and makers don’t need to get their fingers burned immediately when just getting started.

BitScope supercomputer cluster uses 750 Raspberry Pis

BitScope supercomputer cluster uses 750 Raspberry Pis

When you need more computing power, there are usually two solutions: throw in a more powerful processor or throw in more processors. In supercomputing, the latter is often the more efficient solution. But while clusters might be more efficient, they’re not always more economical for all cases. That’s why when the Los Alamos National Laboratory turned to Australian company BitScope for a most cost-effective solution, BitScope, in turn, turned to the most power-efficient, hackable, and moddable mini-computer around: the Raspberry Pi.
