In the face of rising costs due to these shortages, consumers are seeking out cost-effective alternatives. Enter Raspberry Pi, the microcomputer filling this need.
Born from the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s mission to make digital education accessible, this microcomputer is a beacon of affordability in turbulent times. Their recent initiatives include providing equipment for underprivileged students during the pandemic.
Their newest product merges a computer with a compact keyboard, retailing at a mere 110 AUD. Even their previous models not integrated with a keyboard are priced as low as 10 AUD. This affordability has spurred innovative applications, such as:
- Smart mirrors powered by Google.
- Wi-Fi extenders.
- Remote-controlled 3D printers.
- GPS vehicle tracking.
- Voice-activated intercoms. Impressively, a Raspberry Pi even found its place aboard the International Space Station.
While Raspberry Pi might not replace all business solutions, it offers a budget-friendly alternative during these challenging times.
