NYCR <3 RasPi
The Raspberry Pi is a tiny, insanely cheap mini computer. It combines a 700mhz ARM processor, a GPU, hardware h.264 decoding, and a bunch of GPIO pins for interacting with the real world, all for about $25. The Pi was designed with students in mind, but there's tons of potential for interactivity, robotics, and art when you can literally afford to build the computer into your installations.
The Raspberry Pi foundation (they're a nonprofit) is stopping at NYC Resistor on their Hackerspace Roadshow. Come and join us for an evening with talks and hands-on time with the Raspberry Pi. Special guests from Adafruit will be joining us as well, with some of the awesome stuff they've designed for making your Pi even more tasty.
RaspberryPi: Past, Present & Future - An introduction to the RaspberryPi, including an overview of its history and development, details on the technical specification and an outline of future developments with many cool tech demos along the way. Followed by a Q&A session.
A chance to demonstrate various OS's, new revisions of the Pi and the latest add-on expansion hardware.
A Taste of RaspberryPi - A chance to play with the RaspberryPi hands-on.
Show & Tell / Prizes:
