Rasberry Pi- the cheapest miniature computer makers have opened their first brick-and-mortar store. The store is located in Cambridge, UK. Earlier, if you wanted to buy a Raspberry Pi, you would have to get it online from Amazon or an authorized Pi reseller. Taking a leaf from Apple stores, the Pi store not only showcases the Pi boxes but also various gadgets and gizmos related to IoT.
Founder Eben Upton said he hoped the shop would attract customers who were “curious” about the brand. Raspberry Pi – which resembles a motherboard with ports and chips exposed – was launched in 2012, principally as an educational tool for programming. The tiny PC packs enough power to run operating systems such as Ubuntu and Windows 10 IoT Core. It has a large support community working on various projects all over the globe.
