David Braben, Spieleentwickler von unter anderem Elite (!), hat einen winzigen PC vorgestellt, der nicht mehr als rund 20 Öcken kostet (15 Pfund, 17 Euro, 25 Dollar) und per HDMI an einen Fernseher anschließen kann. Die Produktionskosten sollen letztlich so niedrig werden, dass man die PCs an Schüler verschenken kann, die müssen sich allerdings noch eine USB-Tastatur dazukaufen. Eat this, One Laptop per Child.

Snip von der BBC:

It's not much bigger than your finger, it looks like a leftover from an electronics factory, but its makers believe their £15 computer could help a new generation discover programming.

The games developer David Braben and some colleagues came to the BBC this week to demonstrate something called Raspberry Pi. It's a whole computer on a tiny circuit board - not much more than an ARM processor, a USB port, and an HDMI connection. They plugged a keyboard into one end, and hooked the other into a TV they had brought with them.

The result, a working computer running on a Linux operating system for very little, and a device that will, like the kit computers of the 1970s and 80s, encourage users to tinker around under the bonnet and learn a bit of programming. And it's a yearning to return to those days that is driving Braben and the other enthusiasts who are working to turn this sketchy prototype into a product that could be handed to every child in Britain.

Specs:

- 700MHz ARM11
- 128MB of SDRAM
- OpenGL ES 2.0
- 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode
- Composite and HDMI video output
- USB 2.0
- SD/MMC/SDIO memory card slot
- General-purpose I/O
- Open software (Ubuntu, Iceweasel, KOffice, Python)
