Raspberry Pi

Sounds delicious, don't you think?
Well, it gets better, muuch better... well... if you're into computers anyway, the Raspberry Pi is a computer system the size of a thumb drive. it's specs are:

700MHz ARM11,
128MB of SDRAM,
OpenGL ES 2.0,
1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode,
Composite and HDMI video output,
USB 2.0,
SD/MMC/SDIO memory card slot,
General-purpose I/O, and
Open software (Ubuntu, Iceweasel, KOffice, Python)

It was created for the purpose of teaching children the basic principles of programming so that once they grow up they're not completely brain dead computer wise in the future... unlike some of the people now are... which I actually found quite amusing as it's always funny watching someone point a mouse at a screen and commanding it to work for them...

  1. Dude that's pretty sick. And the ARM processors are beasts. I had to do an assignment on them for my microcontrollers class.
