Raspberry Pi is the microcomputer revolutionizing computer science and programming across the globe. Apart from being super fun to build projects like robots and RC cars with, Raspberry Pi is also an interactive way to learn to program. There's no better time than the present to start tinkering with Raspberry Pi, as they recently released the new and improved version 3.
The Boing Boing store is even offering a full Raspberry Pi 3 Kit complete with everything you need to take full advantage of the Raspberry Pi's considerable computing and processing power. You can link it up with the included SainSmart LCD display to compute more easily, control your Raspberry Pi directly from the board controller (also included), and connect to the internet or Bluetooth right out of the box.
In no time, you'll be coding more complex programs and apps, like music makers and weather stations, and you'll be doing it all with the functionality of your own mini-supercomputer.
Plus, since it comes packing Quad-Core 1.2 GHz CPU and 1 GB of RAM, you'll never have to worry about how much the Raspberry Pi can handle. It's as easy as pulling out the included quick start guide and getting started.
For a limited time, the Raspberry Pi 3 Complete LCD Display Kit is just $114.99.

In this footage, a supercomputer's CPU cores — nearly 900 of them — are neatly lined up in the Task Manager. The Doom logo appears, generated by code that targets each core. Then Doom itself plays, each "pixel" generated by thrashing a core with just the right amount of busy work. Max Holt: Finally got […]
Even as the world takes tentative steps toward reopening against the ebbs and flows of COVID-19, movie theaters remain in a netherworld limbo.
