The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer, geared towards enabling people of all ages to explore computing and programming in languages like Scratch and Python. It runs Linux based operating systems from an SD card and is capable of doing everything a typical computer can do, from browsing the internet to making spreadsheets, playing games and word-processing.

The Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital projects, from home media centres and arcade gaming systems to autonomous robots and automated drip irrigation systems.

The included User Guide for Raspberry Pi will walk you through how to get up and running with your new board, but it doesn't stop there. Learn how to use your Raspberry Pi to set up Minecraft, a standalone media centre with RaspBMC, or interact with a camera, lights and sensors.
