Raspberry launches Pi Zero $5 computer

Raspberry Pi has released a line of stellar hardware over the years. From the larger computer chips they began prototyping in 2006, they've since managed to build the more Apple TV-sized Raspberry Pi available today.

For those of you uninitiated, the Raspberry Pi, in all it's versions on sale today, is a programmable mini computer, basically a chip about the size of your palm. They're shipped with I/O ports like USB 3.0, HDMI, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. They're also shipped as blank slates, so you can load configure them any way you want. Program the Pi as a fully functioning desktop, and hide it behind a corner of your monitor. Need more storage options? build it as a wireless storage unit instead; hook it up to a storage drive, sync it to your WiFi and boom, you've got wireless storage in your home. And all of that for around US $25 - $30.Raspberry Pi Zero, made in Wales and priced at just $5.
