The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, deck of cards sized computer that can use a standard keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Despite its price and size it’s capable of doing everything a desktop computer can, from browsing the internet and playing high-def video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and even playing games.
Backed up by a creative, vibrant and always helpful Internet community, the Pi offers limitless projects and expandability. Plenty of inspiration is just a Google away, you’ll see that people have created media centres, WiFi access points, parent detectors, bird house monitors, and Minecraft servers.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a registered educational charity with the goal of advancing the education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects. The Raspberry Pi is a great tool to get kids involved in understanding how computers work and how they can be used as a tool.
Why they'll love it:
The Pi is designed to help get people into understanding how computers really work. This is far removed from the snappy user interfaces on an Apple, with one of these you are forced to think about and understand how to setup a computer. All this in an affordable package that allows you the freedom to play.
There are a whole host of Pi enthusiast websites on the net with a range of projects to suit any interest. From building a home media center to a home security system or even a killer robot. Well, maybe not the last one!
If the Pi is a hit, there are a whole range of accessories and addons to enable even more ambitious projects. That’s Birthday and Christmas sorted then!Wondering what other buyers thought of this gift idea? Read these real buyer reviews and see what they thought.
