David Cameron talks Pi at Davos

We’ve just seen this: Prime Minister David Cameron’s speech to the World Economic Forum at Davos, where he’s been talking about reshoring. And it got us very excited, because at 1m 03s he talks about Raspberry Pi. It is deeply weird to hear your company being namechecked by the PM. It’s all BBC all the... Continue reading

Gordon and Eben talk Pi (and other things)

Gordon Hollingworth, our Director of Software, has been Googling himself, and mailed me to let me know about this video he found from Richard Ibbotson.

Pi NoIR – the first photo; Eben at GigaOM

I’ve got a sample of Pi NoIR, the camera board variant with no infrared filter that we talked about here yesterday, on my desk. I thought you’d like to see a picture. You’ll notice one big difference from the regular camera board: the solder mask is black, not green, so you can easily tell which... Continue reading

LinuxCon keynote

The video of Eben’s LinuxCon keynote has just been made available: enjoy. If you’re one of those people who watches everything we do (we know you are out there, and you fascinate, delight and horrify us in equal measure), you’ll be familiar with most of the first 9 minutes or so.

Eben has a shiny thing

We’re very proud to be able to announce today that Eben is one of the recipients of the Royal Society of Engineering’s Silver Medal for 2013. You can read all about it in the Telegraph, who have the exclusive. We’re chuffed to bits to hear the news, and will be ensuring that he wears it... Continue reading
