Not a new online marketplace for apps, but a brick-and-mortar showroom for the inexpensive, do-anything computers. Romain Dillet checks out “the Pi Foundation’s new shop.
If you live in Cambridge in the U.K., you can now buy a bunch of sweet Raspberry Pis with which to tinker and develop some cool stuff.
The Raspberry Pi has always been about making coding more accessible. And a physical retail space fits the bill. The foundation has developed a lineup of insanely cheap computers with an ARM-based processor, a bunch of ports, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The $35 Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ [Amazon] is the new flagship, but I’ve been looking at getting a Pi Zero [Amazon] with a battery pack [Amazon] to turn my Seiko Pyramid Clock into something the Illuminati would be proud of.
