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 think I could slap one of these in so many different places, under a keyboard, back of the LED monitor, one for the TV too and one for a MagicJack phone. For the future I see uses in Lego Mindstorms type of robots once the software catches up.

The thought of Haiku on it could be sweet too all though it would need Flash to be usable for the kids.

I even wonder if Win8 could run, probably not.

This so takes me back to the innocent days of the Acorn Electron and BBC computer. To think I spent maybe several thousand quid on my Beeb.
