USB memory stick-sized computer unveiled11 May 2011 16:37:46
A fully working computer the size of a USB memory stick has been unveiled.
The device features a processor with a USB port attached on one end and a HDMI port on the other, allowing a keyboard and a monitor to be plugged in.
It means users could easily carry their entire computer with them to be used wherever the required peripherals are available.
The device is the product of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a charity set tup to promote the study of computer science.
It was designed by veteran computer games developer David Braben and could go on sale for as little as £15 when it is launched next year, reports the Daily Telegraph.
"We plan to develop, manufacture and distribute an ultra-low-cost computer, for use in teaching computer programming to children. We expect this computer to have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world," the charity says.
