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

Bend Gordon’s ear

Gordon Hollingworth, our Director of Software, is saddened that I called him out for being camera-shy the other day. So he’s offered to star in a new feature, which we’ll make a regular happening here if readers (that’s you!) like the idea. If you have a question about the Pi you’d like Gordon and his...

The view from Gordon’s helmet

Liz: if you haven’t entered our contest to win a pre-production camera board, have a look at the post explaining what you’ll need to do. And if you’re looking for inspiration, here’s a guest post from Gordon, our Head of Software, about a mini-HD camera project he worked on at home using the prototype boards... Continue reading

Win a pre-production camera board!

We’ve sent the first camera boards to production, and we’re expecting to be able to start selling them some time in April. And we’ve now got several pre-production cameras in the office that we’re testing and tweaking and tuning so the software will be absolutely tickety-boo when you come to buy one. Gordon is in...
