Hardware, Embedded Systems We all know platforms like the Beagleboard, which are cheap hardware platforms which can be used in all sorts of projects. A new entry into this market is Raspberry Pi, a British ARM board which is slated to be released in the fourth quarter of this year. For a mere $25, you'll have a fully-configured ARM-based 1080p-capable mini-motherboard. The device is still in development, and only a few days ago, the alpha version of the board was demonstrated running Quake III.

I had read about these a little while back (from Hackaday I think) and I was excited then. I'm definitely going to buy a few to tinker with, and I might even come up with a nice barebones case for them once they are in hand.

It's ARM, so no porting of Haiku ;) , but the potential is still wide open for a device this small! ;)
