Before four and a half years we met a new hardware trying to sell itself into everyone’s hands. This minicomputer also for the first time costs below $100 (as low as $35). The team behind this project called Raspberry Pi can now surely declare themselves successful. Also known as the raspberry computer, it has packed within it great luck. This is because it could reach a milestone that only a few similar devices could. And that is completing more than 10 million Raspberry Pi sales.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation, controls and develops Raspberry Pi brand. It has announced that it has reached the figure of 10 million raspberry pi sales recently. As a mark of their success this foundation has created an official starter kit. This can be purchased by anyone at any Raspberry Pi store.
Raspberry Pi will have its own official start kit to celebrate this milestone achieved
This success is truly laudable because in the beginning, the creators of Raspberry Pi hoped to sell mere 10,000 units. Hence were looking for a simple, easy and inexpensive kit. Due to this the completion of 10 Million Raspberry Pi sales is such a huge success and has created several different models and in large sales. The new official kit of Raspberry Pi contains not only a kit of Raspberry Pi 3; but everything necessary for the user to work on Raspberry Pi from the first time.
This includes a project guide packed with experiments that can be done with the famous kit. This official start kit will cost $132, an interesting price if we consider that also includes the keyboard, mouse, a HDMI cable, a power supply, SD card, downloadable linux operating system and the case.
In recent months Raspberry Pi has grown a lot, not only selling kits but also gaining a reputation in certain fields such as business world that increasingly uses more this type of kits for their projects. The raspberry pi has become useful for a wide variety of purposes and streams of people. The latest version, Raspberry Pi 3 released this year, comes with integrated WiFi and Bluetooth modules, thus avoiding the need for external dongles. You can join this 10 million+ community by purchasing the Raspberry Pi 3 here.
The success of devices like the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Adafruit has helped the Internet of Things (IoT) become a reality and helped in bringing about a wide variety of devices like drones and wearable computing into our lives.
