Issue #48 — Ronald

Friday 16 May 2014

Hi all

This week, RS Components put out a new advert featuring the Raspberry Pi – and a guy called Ronald who built an incredible fruit drum kit with one!

It’s great to see some Model A/B prototype products evolving to use of the upcoming compute module for production – like the tablet dock we featured last week – and now OTTO, the hackable camera.

Picademy applications are open – so if you know a teacher in the UK who wants to explore the possibilities of using Raspberry Pi in the classroom (in any subject) – send them to and check out the video from April’s course.
