He’s as mad a box of frogs, but we can’t wait to see more.

It offers UK buyers easy access to a wide range of kit and components from some of the world’s best sources including Adafruit and Arduino. Jamie Mann, owner of the popular Raspberry Pi online store, The Pi Hut, recently opened the virtual shutters of the new UK-based outfit. The store currently holds stock for over 600 of Adafruit’s biggest products allowing UK and European hackers to get their hands on quality items without expensive shipping, import fees or slow delivery times. This is just the beginning, though, and Makersify plans to ship more than 2000 products from their UK warehouses to hackers and makers in the UK and Europe. Check out Makersify today and follow them on social media to save 5% on all your orders.

By day Richard Saville is a 28 year old Business Analyst from Southend-on-Sea. By night, like some kind of rubbish superhero, he’s ‘Average Man’. Richard’s alter-ego is dedicated to sharing his journey with the Raspberry Pi on his blog On his blog’s About page, Richard. With his blog Richard has taken many of the best bits of his online research – filling in all the holes that many tutorials and guides tend to assume you’re aware of – and puts it all together for the everyday user to enjoy.

During the recording we talk about his local Raspberry Pi Jam event, his favourite blog posts and projects and cover a few of the new things he’s doing, including some insight into a Kickstarter campaign he’s preparing. More details on that when we get them.

As exclusively reported back in July, Sonic Pi 2 is the hotly anticipated music application for Raspberry Pi. “Sonic Pi v1.0 was really just a fun toy created to try out a new approach to engaging children with programming… kind of an audio version of Logo,” said Aaron.

However Sonic Pi v2.0 is no longer a toy – it’s now a fully capable musical instrument. The timing has been completely reworked, you can now play samples, there’s an amazingly powerful yet simple effects system and perhaps most importantly you can now live code with Sonic Pi. This means you can modify the code whilst it’s still running Not only does Sam Aaron reveal that Sonic Pi 2 is out now on the Raspberry Pi, but he also lets us know that it’s also available on Mac OS X too – brilliant for parents to use and help their kids get to grips with the new software, or for enthusiasts to take their musical compositions to the next level with the aid of more powerful hardware.

Raspberry Pi – Everything you need to know

If you start to imagine a computer, you probably visualized it with all its peripheries and gadgets; but if you strip it form all the surplus, keep merely the vital parts and shrink it down to the size of a credit card, you end up with a Raspberry Pi. This deliciously named device is, despite of its simplistic look, is exactly this - a small computer designed for powering an enormous range of experiments, tasks and educational purposes. But above all, the single board computer promotes the learning of basics of computer science using a more hands on approach.

The green board that encapsulates all the major languages

Since its release in February 2012, the board was continuously improved and perfected from one generation to another. Some specifications include a graphics processing unit ranging between 700 MHz and 1.2 GHz – for the latest version, a board memory starting from 256 MB all the way to 1 GB of random access memory (RAM), several USB slots, HDMI video output and a 3.5 mm phono jack for audio output – it is basically everything that you get on a regular PC, but on a much smaller scale.

As for the operating system, it is stored on a secure digital (SD) card – either SDHC or Micro SDHC. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is promoting Python as its main programming language, but the board can also support C, C++, PHP, Ruby, Pearl and of course Java. Even if it is designed to support many other OS, the Raspberry Pi primarily uses a Linux-kernel-based operating system, Rasbian – it can be easily be downloaded of the foundation’s site onto your SD card; after that is ready to use. The board is used in various projects as a great supplement and support in taking the first steps in the world of computer programming.

For those of you who are looking for your other half, the board is a great start for a Live Sex Cam site like – a place where all those in search for a good time can meet and feel good. Everything you need to do is to install the Rasbian OS and a webcam and after that follow some tutorials on the internet that’s the shortest way to your own Live Sex Cam site, thus the shortest way to pleasure.

When it comes to all the possibilities for kids that it can offer, the sky is the limit: talking toys, adding voice control to various electric home devices (as the microwave), turning the Raspberry into classic gaming machine or a regular phone, or maybe even a FM radio transmitter – one can only be limited by his own imagination.

Of course Raspberry Pi is not just a kids’ toy as it can be used by passionate adults as well. Even if you are a child or a grown-up, Raspberry Pi can lead your first steps in today’s most modern of sciences, programming. Whether is for learning, teaching, Live Sex Cams or simply hobby, Raspberry Pi is worth it.
