he Raspberry Pi Model B is a credit card size computer designed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and manufactured in the UK. This single board computer plugs directly into your TV or monitor. With a 700MHz ARM CPU and 512MB of SDRAM It packs quite a powerful punch and is capable of running high intensity applications such as HD 1080P video playback. The Raspberry Pi offers a low cost programming platform using a number of programming languages including Scratch and Python. With 26 lines of GPIO the Raspberry Pi also allows users to bridge the gap into physical computing and control things in the real world rather than just on the screen.
