The New Teeny, Tiny Raspberry Pi Is The Same Size As A Stick Of RAM

The ever customisable Raspberry Pi was a rather small piece of hardware to begin with, but the organisation behind the device have unveiled the latest member of the Raspberry Pi family, the Compute Module. It has the same processor and 4GB of storage that you’d find in a Raspberry Pi, but it’s the same size as stick of DDR2 laptop memory.

Two Years Of Raspberry Pi, Celebrated

Two years ago, on the 29th of Feb 2012, a tiny little machine came out with the intention of bringing cheap computing to areas that were hard to access, and proliferating programming knowledge and interest. But there was a happy side effect, in that we all got to see what crafty people on the internet would do with such a small, yet highly capable, computer. Matt, The Raspberry Pi Guy, made this video compilation of said crafty people to celebrate this milestone.

You Can Build This Elegant Raspberry Pi Tablet Yourself

Hey, a new tablet! Crisp 10-inch touchscreen? Check. Luxurious carbon fibre and wood case? Present. Huge 10,000mAh battery? Yep. Linux-based and built at home? Err…

How To Get Even More Out Of A Raspberry Pi

No doubt about it, the Raspberry Pi is nothing short of a homebrew phenomenon. Since its release in February 2012, the British micro-mini-computer has enabled legions of amateur inventors to develop projects both weird and wonderful. Here’s a run-down of the most impressive applications, ranging from weather stations to retro arcades to a supercomputer array on a Lego rack. See if any of them inspire you to do the same.

Yep, This Adorable Mini Macintosh Is Fully Functional

Apple’s compact Mac mini isn’t as popular as it once was, but the company could easily make it a hot seller again if it just followed John Leake’s lead and turned it into a miniature Macintosh. At one-third the size of the original, it’s pretty much too cute to resist.

This Death Star Hologram Was Made Using A Raspberry Pi

Who doesn’t want a holographic Death Star sitting on the mantle at home? A group at the University of Leeds in the UK could make your dreams come true, as long as you don’t mind the requirements: a plastic enclosure containing a ring of LEDs spinning at 300rpm, a Raspberry Pi and uh, electricity.

Neverwet's Waterproof Magic Turns Circuit Boards Into Submarines

We’ve had a quite a bit of fun covering anything we could get our hands on with water-repelling magic, but the folks over at Adafruit took it a step further and risked a little electrocution. But the result — submersible circuit boards — is definitely cool enough to be worth the trouble.

Dog Owner Rigs Door So That It Unlocks With A Bark

For everyone in the world whose heart has not blackened and shrivelled beyond repair, nothing boosts your mood quite like a new family addition in the form of a dog. That is until you have to wake up at the crack of dawn to let that needy, opposable-thumbless mutt out. New dog owner and Raspberry Pi enthusiast David Hunt has rigged himself up a highly creative solution: a door that automatically unlocks at your dog’s bark — or as he’s dubbed it, Pi-Rex.

'Murmur' Shows Room Noise On The Walls

Make sure you don’t mutter to yourself at Murmur, because your petty grievances will end up visualized on the wall. The project uses Raspberry Pi and openFrameworks to visualise and project LED simulations of the sound waves in a room.

This Raspberry Pi Just Came Back From Space With Some Incredible Photos

The Raspberry Pi has done some incredible things, and now the foundation behind the micro-computer can safely say that it has been to space! Meet Dave Akerman and his amazing Pi in the Sky project that captured beautiful images of the curvature of the Earth from space!
