Let the BattlePi commence…

Recently I visited the University of York Computer Science department for the second year running to see the Raspberry Pi being used to great effect on the new intake of students. Last year I visited to judge Blue Pi Thinking, and since it was such a great success they decided to repeat the exercise this year.... Continue reading

The Raspberry Pi Guy Interviews Clive & Gordon

Last month we put out a call for questions for our education and engineering teams. Matt Timmons-Brown, aka The Raspberry Pi Guy, was given the chance to interview Clive Beale who heads up our education team; and Gordon Hollingworth who heads up software engineering. We hope you find that fills a few gaps and enjoyed hearing from... Continue reading

CNET: The Making of Raspberry Pi

At the end of August, Luke Westaway from CNET’s Adventures in Tech came to visit us with a film crew. Here’s the resulting video. We are impressed that somehow the CNET team managed to avoid moiré fringing effects with Gordon’s shirt.... Continue reading

Slice – a media player using the Raspberry Pi Compute Module

We revealed the Raspberry Pi Compute Module back in April, and released the Compute Module Development Kit in the middle of June. Since then we’ve had a lot of interest and will shortly start shipping the Compute Module in volume to a variety of manufacturers who have already designed it into their products. One of...

Talks from Team Pi

I’ve been pointed at a couple of videos which might interest you: you’ll learn something new from both of these. First up, Eben explains more about the Compute Module to our friends at RS Components: And a little later on, Gordon, our Head of Software, gave a talk to the Prime Conference at the Royal...

Vectors from coarse motion estimation

Liz: Gordon Hollingworth, our Director of Software, has been pointing the camera board at things, looking at dots on a screen, and cackling a lot over the last couple of weeks. We asked him what he was doing, so he wrote this for me. Thanks Gordon! The Raspberry Pi is based on a BCM2835 System... 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. Richard came by Pi Towers last month and filmed this little interview with Gordon and Eben – it’s worth a watch if you’re interested in what goes on behind the... Continue reading

Blue Pi Thinking from the University of York

The University of York asked if we could send someone up to judge a Raspberry Pi contest they’d been running for people joining the Computer Science department over the summer break. Our very own Dr Gordon Hollingworth is a York alumnus, so we sent him to revisit his old stomping grounds (in one of his collection... Continue reading

Gordon Hollingworth talks to the Orlando Sentinel

Dr Gordon Hollingworth, our Head of Software, has been in Orlando visiting Familab, one of our favourite hackspaces. (I love it there – unusually, they’re in a big industrial unit, so they’ve got a lot of space for really big hardware. They’ve got cherry pickers, traffic lights, an industrial CNC milling machine and a lot... Continue reading
