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.
