The Raspberry Pi PC is about the size of a USB flash drive. It’s an ultra-minimal PC that David Braben hopes to sell for about $25 (USD). Now that’s a nice portable (and affordable) form-factor.

The Raspberry Pi comes with a 700MHz ARM11 processor, 128MB of RAM, composite and HDMI ports for video, removable media and a USB 2.0 port. If you add a 16GB SD card, a USB hub connected to a mouse and keyboard, and a monitor, whammo, you’ve got a fully-functioning PC. It can even decode 1080p30 H.264 video. That thing you see sticking off the board is an optional 12 megapixel camera module.

While there are other low-cost alternatives, this is an impressive piece of kit for what it is. I’d like to see this everywhere, powering schools, libraries, and Internet caf├ęs all over the world. You can check out more about the Raspberry Pi over at its website, or check out the video below.

I hope to soon be able to walk around with a supercomputer the size of a MacBook Air.
