    The new Raspberry Pi 2, now with Windows 10 support


    The humble Raspberry Pi, the board that has taught countless people (adults and children alike) to program and which powers innumerable homebrew hacks and project, has received a hardware upgrade that makes it ready to run a custom version of Windows 10. One of the keys to making Windows 10 run on the Raspberry Pi platform is better hardware. The new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B has at its heart a quad-core ARMv7 processor that is said to be six times more powerful than the old Model B+ version.

    I have a B+ and will be buying one of these as well. I was reading an article on it on the Hackaday site. I was happy to see that this new version should be able to run Android, the B+ I have won't. This is even better news though. I'm guessing this is a port of Windows RT?

    I got one (Model B) hooked up as a headless internet radio and network music player with wireless headphone. I control it via app on android phone.



    Other times I use it as a surveillance cam.

    For a lot of things if you are a coding enthusiast. Look it up on google.

    It can be a stand alone PC by itself ( but you need a monitor with HDMI). It can run linux, android and they are working on free Windows 10 version for RPi.

    It's a mini single board computer. Based on a SOC, System On a Chip, I believe. I have a GPS breakout module and a pressure temp sensor breakout module to play with. They plug into a bread board that connects to the GPIO pins on the Pi. I haven't done a whole lot much with mine yet. I just ordered a 5 inch LCD touch display for mine. It's just the bare touch screen with backpack. No case. HDMI input. It should arrive any day now. We've been doing a bunch of home renovations so I packed it all away for now. I have to find some space to set it all up again to play with.

    With my brain the way it is; I was looking for a real world usage explanation not a technical blow your mind away explanation. . .albeit thanks for what you were able to provide me with. . .

    No one can say what it does in a few words. You will be blown away when you find out. But to give you an idea, you can use an RPi board to make...

    - A game console/Arcade machine
    -A netbook
    -Time lapse camera dolly
    -airplay speakers
    -internet radio
    -web server
    -wearable computer
    -a control unit for quad-copter
    -HD surveillance camera
    -3D scanner
    -web controlled power strip
    -photo booth...

    I can go on forever...

    And the latest quad-core board with 1GB RAM is only $35.
