Compute Module
Back in April 2014, we launched the Compute Module to provide hardware developers with a way to incorporate Raspberry Pi technology into their own products. Since then, we’ve seen it used to build home media players, industrial control systems, and everything in between. Earlier this week, NEC announced that they would be adding Compute Module...

Back in August 2014, a startup company called FiveNinjas launched Slice, the first ever Compute Module-based media player, on Kickstarter. We are FiveNinjas: James Adams and Gordon Hollingworth from Raspberry Pi, Jonathan Williamson and Paul Beech of Pimoroni, and Mo Volans, entrepreneur and music producer. We’re here to tell you how we created a consumer... Continue reading
CubeSats are a type of miniature satellite that are around the size of a shoe box and made from easily available, non-aerospace, parts. Because CubeSats use widely supported technologies, you no longer have to be a government or a space corporation to send a satellite into orbit: building a CubeSat is within the reach of individuals,...

A quick survey of the desks at Pi Towers reveals thirteen Rubik’s Cubes in various states of done-ness. Gordon’s brain doesn’t work without a cube to play with, and Ben appears to breed them in his desk drawers. (Rubik’s cubes are not the worst thing that breeds in Ben’s drawers.) With this Cube Solver from... Continue reading
A few weeks ago Matt Timmons-Brown, The Raspberry Pi Guy, visited Pi Towers to interview Raspberry Pi Trading CEO Eben Upton. Over the course of an hour and a half, Matt drew Eben’s detailed answers on some of the topics that hundreds of you put forward in response to a call for questions. When might... Continue reading
Ben Heck’s got another terrific build: a DIY graphing calculator built with a Raspberry Pi Compute Module (and later an A+). No schematics yet, but if Ben does release them we’ll add a link here. Frankly, this is one of those projects that’s just so daft and so much fun to watch coming together (especially... Continue reading
Back in August 2014 we got very excited about one of the first Kickstarter projects to use the Raspberry Pi Compute Module. We’re pleased to announce that after much hard work, many late nights and far too much sugar and caffeine, the FiveNinjas team have started shipping actual real Slices to backers. Here’s a picture...

It’s been a few months since we originally announced the Compute Module. Now we’re beginning to see orders from industrial customers, and designs incorporating it hitting various crowd funding websites, we thought it might be time to have a get-together to share a little! The Compute Module is not a consumer product. It was developed specifically... Continue reading
Liz: Today’s guest post comes from Alex Eames, who runs the rather wonderful RasPi.TV. He’s been furtling through his drawers, and has discovered he owns a surprising number of Raspberry Pi variants. Thanks Alex!  Now we have the A+, I thought it’d be a good time to celebrate its ‘birth’ by having a rundown of the various... Continue reading
Liz: We’ve got a number of good friends at Argon Design, a tech consultancy in Cambridge. (James Adams, our Director of Hardware, used to work there; as did my friend from the time of Noah, @eyebrowsofpower; the disgustingly clever Peter de Rivaz, who wrote Penguins Puzzle, is an Argon employee; and Steve Barlow, who heads Argon up,...
