If there's any doubt about the fever surrounding the Raspberry Pi, consider this: More than $680,000 has been pledged for Raspberry Pi-based Kickstarter projects to date, with new projects popping up daily.
The following Kickstarter-funded projects all involve an adaptation of the popular and cheap Raspberry Pi, possibly inspiring you to think of your own new application.
SInce RPi is a non-profit organization for education, I am wondering if RPi may be a victim of its success - in other words is there apoint where Broadcom etc. will not donate more deivces to build more RPi? I do not know the exact number, but I have heard that there are over 2 million shipped to date. That is a lot of devices.
It seems that the Raspberry Pi keeps growing and growing in new and broader applications. It almost seems to have a life of its own, just goes to show you the level of interest in the hobby market for a low cost / powerful / small computing platform. I can't wait to see what is done next..
Man, the Raspberry Pi really is going nuts. I can't believe how many things people are doing with them. I'm probably going to do a mini arcade with mine even though I know it will rarely ever get used.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
