The Raspberry Pi Foundation started out with one simple goal: to increase the number of people applying to study Computer Science at Cambridge. The company hoped that by putting cheap, programmable computers in the hands of the right young people, they might revive some sense of excitement about computing that many had back in the 1980s with their Sinclair Spectrums, BBC Micros and Commodore 64s.
But four and a half years later, the Raspberry Pi Foundation is celebrating a quite unexpected milestone. Their $35 microcomputer, has now sold more than 10 million units in its standalone form.
To celebrate the occasion, the company has put together its first official Raspberry Pi Starter Kit, which includes the best accessories and peripherals, thoroughly selected so you could easily get on with a new project.
What you’ll find inside a minimalist white box:
- A Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
- An 8GB NOOBS SD card
- An official Raspberry Pi case
- An official 2.5A multi-region power supply
- An official 1m HDMI cable
- An optical mouse and a keyboard with high-quality scissor-switch action
- A copy of Adventures in Raspberry Pi Foundation Edition
