God damnit I can't wait
I have some tiny spare screens and batteries from salvaged video game consoles and phones.
Even have a tiny keyboard, some rechargable batteries, a few tiny solar panels.
I am going to create my own personal handheld gaming device with this.
I'm going to have a ball.

EDIT: PSP battery voltage is too low.

Your right! It was the good old days lol.

Interesting to note that Acorn, who built the BBC Micro I used in school as a kid went on to become ARM Holdings who's chip architecture powers the Raspberry Pie, and just about every smartphone out there.

I think the architecture was originally to outdo the old Motorola 6502.

My old Speccy is still upstairs, I dust it off from time to time.. It's funny how I still remember BASIC after all these years.

There's so much room for innovation with this little device. There's any number of projects that could be brought to life.

The price point just makes it accessible to everyone. Just watch, Rasperry Pie could take over the world! It's a hobbyists dream.

This thing is sweet, gonna have to pick one up!

Currently SSD drives are shrinking smaller than the SATA connector, and I feel we are about to hit a major tech boom.

Imagine the next iPhone and other phones running a lighting fast SSD instead of a slow outdated SD card.

I got mine this afternoon already!!! Haven't had the chance to really play with it yet.. I got home from work and had a small package sitting beside my garage.. Sure enough!

If you are planning on interfacing with robotics, the Arduino Uno R3 is still miles above this wizzy new board in real time capability. You would have to attach a lot of DIO, PWD and A2D to do real time work on this r-pi, which would have to be done much slower serially with attachments interfacing with the USB interface.

Edit: That said, interfacing both of these boards together would be a real trip! Best of both worlds.

They haven't shipped any production boards yet have they? Did you buy one of the beta boards from Ebay?

Yes, it's a beta board.. Sorry, should've been a little clearer on that.
