[Sale] Say Hi to the Pi

The Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras. We want to see the Raspberry Pi being used by kids all over the world to learn to program and understand how computers work." - The Raspberry Pi Foundation

A lot of people have heard about the credit card-sized computer that is the Raspberry Pi. But in case they haven’t, we’re here to introduce the 45g device to them again, with a twist. For the next 2 months starting today, we’ll be offering the Raspberry Pi B+ on a sale price of only Ksh. 5,999at ouronline store. Having received feedback from our initial announcement inJune, our motivation to ensurethat our clientle is satisfied led us to bring down the price for this period. We also believe that this device represents a great tool for anyone interested in working with hardware and software orgenerally trying to find a cost-effective computer to practise their programming on. For those elite coders out there, you are not to be left out as the Pi has a variety of uses with hardware, allowing you to finally manifest your software skills in tangible ways.
At iHub, our very own Research & Development team has implemented a door access system that makes use of the Raspberry Pi in registration and verification of team members using the second floor space. While its founder, Eben Upton, envisioned it as a starter kitfor high school students looking to study computing,the Pi is being used for tonnes of other cool stuff including recreating the bullet-dodgingscenes from The Matrix as shown below, playing Hangman, in security cameras or monitoring train times.

So hurry and get your Pi while it's still hothere.
