Raspberry Pi - the tiny, yet powerful, and amazingly cheap computer

It is very exciting to see where technological advancements are taking us. Not only are computers getting more powerful and less cumbersome, technology is getting cheaper and most importantly: it’s open (source). Raspberry Pi, made by a UK charity organization, is an excellent example:

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.

Imagine all the new possibilities the community will recognize and create with this device. Adding such a small and powerful computer to innovative contraptions, the societal benefits could be tremendous. And because of the low price tag, it doesn’t hurt to experiment and fail… until something does work out.

In any case, we’re getting one!
