The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse.

At a recent webinar organised by element14, presenter Gough Lui discussed the capabilities of the little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.

He is currently a PhD student at the University of New South Wales, working with a laboratory program on the development and demonstration of Digital and Embedded Systems.

The Raspberry Pi has the ability to be used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras.

Raspberry Pi is being used by hobbyists all over the world to learn to program and understand how computers work.
