Hardware, Embedded Systems The BBC reviews the Raspberry Pi. "The device may inspire a new generation of computer programmers or it could leave children used to smartphones and tablet computers baffled and bewildered. A great experiment with the way we teach computing has begun and we can't be sure how it will end." Mine's coming the week of May 21.

schools Pi's will be shipped with an enclosure so his whole premise about open circuits being daunting for children is moot


This brings up the question of why do we want to hide the circuits from the kids? Shouldn't we show them the guts of the machine, and maybe inspire them to want to learn more?

I understand the need for a case, but I think it should be clear.
