For Raspberry Pi’s second anniversary (which will be at the end of February), Matt Timmons Brown (aka the Raspberry Pi Guy from Youtube) has created the above video, demoing a bunch of interesting Raspberry Pi projects and some interviews taken to important people, talking about the Raspberry Pi board.
In mid-November 2013, the number of the the sold Raspberry Pi units has achieved 2 million, after about two years since the project was born.
Among the interesting Raspberry Pi based projects, worth reminding are the following:
- Upstagram – a flying paper house that posts live pictures on Instagram, via a Raspberry Pi
- Ubuntu compatible Raspberry Pi cluster – a cluster built of 32 Raspberry Pi single board computers
- Weblink – a low cost Raspberry Pi based IVI solution for cars
- How to transform a Raspberry Pi into a tablet by using the DukePad instructions
- A Sprite-like looking webcam powered by a Raspberry Pi
- The bioscope – a Raspberry Pi movie projector
For those who don’t know yet, the Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer with the size of a credit-card, having a 700 Mhz ARM CPU, 512 MB of RAM, USB ports, Ethernet port, HDMI port for pluging TVs or monitors, and supports SD cards up to 32 GB. Used with a keyboard, mouse and plugged in at a TV, this small ARM device turns into a modest computer, good for daily basic tasks.
