Raspberry Pi Redesign

 

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer, developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The dinky device was created in order to supply schools with the means to teach basic computer science at a reasonable price. The device costs around £25, and is suitable for people of all ages.
