Shorts. You don't want to see the average 30+ Brit in shorts. Its not a pretty sight.

We are missing a trick here by not including RP sock suspenders :)

Eben is a very enthusiastic rower and cyclist. This necessitates the ownership of lycra shorts to cover two thighs that, as a result of the rowing/cycling resemble nothing so much as two outsized, hairy hams. Shorts are horrific, lycra or otherwise. No shorts.

Then you probably will need raspberry Pi underware, unless you are going to be traditional

David Braben bobblehead dolls are probably not going to happen.


Maybe some 3rd party company will step up to the mark and start offering David, Eben, Liz, Gert, Jack, Rob, Pete, Jamesh and Alan bobbleheads? (have I missed anyone?) I can see them becoming collector's items in years to come.

"Hello, I'm David Braben"


Yeah

You've missed Jamesh - who I just can't imagine in bobblehead form. That's not to say I'm not having fun trying, though.

I'd be up for headgear. Either a decent quality baseball cap or a wooly hat.

As for America, try going into a shop and asking if you can get a pack of fags. The other way around, I'd strongly dissuade American ladies from asking for a "fanny pack" in the UK.

i'd definitely get and wear a raspberry-colored tshirt. as well as what we would call in america a "hoody" - pull-over sweatshirt with a hood, and a big pocket on the front

We also could use


for our girlfriends, to power the Pi.

That opens up a dilemma though: more leg/cleavage, or more power ?

@blindahl:

That sort of garment is called a hoody/hoodie in the UK too - Here it would not perhaps give the right impression; stereotypically a hoodie is worn by an aimless youth with a string of ASBOs ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A.....iour_Order ) to his credit. The hood is typically worn to prevent identification on the street and in retail outlets by CCTV.

Apart from that, I've no problem with the garment!

On a more constructive note...

A Raspberry Pi logo (when decided upon) embedded in one of those self-adhesive plastic PC case badges. I've got one on this PC with a Tux on it and another with a SuSE Gecko and the slogan Linux Inside.

A rasberry pi one would be nice :-)

I know this is more packaging, but I do like a nice shiny printed anti-static bag. 8-)

A Foam Raspberry squishy toy with the RasPi Logo on it, good for a keychain as well.

USB drives are a given for a device with such limited storage, of course :)

How about a DIY RasPi Case Kit? And I would buy "Linux inside" or "Powered by Linux" stickers.

How about a T-shirt with a mock pie recipe:
"Raspberry Pi
1 ounce of love
25 USD
700 MHz ARM processor
1 Linux distro of choice
Mix and enjoy."

A small USB keyboard with the logo on would also be interesting.

I'm liking the R w/ a pie wedge logo on the antistatic bag.

+1 for a anti-static bag or anti-static pencil box / tin with the above logo

I picked up a number $1.00 plastic pencil boxes at Staples. I wonder how much of an ESD charge they will build, and then ZAP to the R-Pi? Otherwise might be good for holding the R-Pi, power brick, i/f cords and memory cards. The card is Awsome, now if we can do something about all the other things needed to support the card.
