If you’re still racking your brains on what to buy someone this Christmas, how about a brand new computer – for just $5!
No, you read that right. You can now buy a fully functioning computer for $5.
So what can you actually do with it?
The Raspberry Pi interface is simple and user-friendly. With the powerful processor, you can quickly access programmes, games and the internet – they even have their own version of Minecraft!
Included on this computer are a lot of incredible programmes such as Scratch, a visual programming tool which allows users to create animations and games and Sonic Pi, an open-source programme designed for creating sounds.
The limits are seemingly endless.
Five dollars doesn’t usually buy a lot these days, but in this case it buys a huge window into the world of computing. Anyone who wants to learn coding, how to create games or just simply wants a portable computer would surely love the Raspberry Pi Zero.
For novice users and people new to the Raspberry family, their website is chock-full of information and easy to follow how-to guides. You can also pick up the Zero and other Raspberry products with links from their online shop. There is also a monthly magazine called The MagPi you can buy online or at your local supermarket. This month you get a Zero FREE with the magazine!
