Product Business of the Year Finalist 2013: The Raspberry Pi Foundation
The Raspberry Pi Foundation aims to “put the fun back into computing”. As part of this effort, they have designed and licensed a small-board educational microcomputer for education, the ‘Raspberry Pi’. The foundation is also working with OCR to improve computing in schools and hence improve the technical level of candidates looking to study computing as they progress into higher education.
The Raspberry Pi is a category-defining piece of technology; at its launch it was the only very low-priced, small-footprint PC replacement available and with a recent $1m grant from Google, the device’s popularity is spreading fast.
