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.

It would be cool to mod one of these inside a keyboard, so you have an all-in-one mini PC like an 80s micro.


Yeah... that'd be a great idea. Incorperate a powered USB hub on that keyboard and I'm sold.

Power to keyboard (weird right?), power to monitor, HDMI from keyboard to monitor, wireless mouse.

Would be a pretty clean design.
