The fact that a £25 computer board can generate so much excitement in a world dominated by flashy smartphones and swish laptops shows the impact of the Raspberry Pi on the tech world.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation unveiled its latest effort this week, the Raspberry Pi 2, an upgraded version offering several enhancements and extras, but at the same low cost that has helped the device to become such a success.
Interest levels are clearly high, and V3 has put together a top 10 list of some of the interesting updates, as well as celebrating its impact on the wider technology community.
10. Over 4.5 million Raspberry Pi unit shipped since launch
When Eben Upton dreamed up the idea for the Raspberry Pi he estimated shipping around 10,000 units. No doubt that seemed a lot when jotting some thoughts down on paper.
However, fast forward a few years and Upton was able to announce at the launch of the Raspberry Pi 2 that a staggering 4.5 million have shipped as people around the world clamoured to get hold of the little computing marvel.
The number of units shipped is testament not just to the efforts of the Raspberry Pi team and its partners, but to the obvious demand from people keen to tinker and experiment, rather than just have a device handed to them with locked down cases and impenetrable innards.
