  • How to set up Windows 10 (IoT Core) on the Raspberry Pi (yes, on a $35 computer!)

    A beginner's guide to installing and pushing a simple app to Windows 10 IoT Core running on a Raspberry Pi. Microsoft's ambition is for Windows 10 to run on every type of computing device, even the credit card-sized $35 Raspberry Pi board. The Pi doesn't run the same version of Windows 10 as a laptop does, but a far simpler, stripped-back release called Windows 10 IoT Core. This OS won't boot you into the traditional Windows desktop, but instead loads a bare bones menu from which you can set up the system, which can only run a single Universal Windows...

    Redmond plans pre-loaded WinPi for thing-makers Microsoft has announced a cut Windows 10 IoT Core for the Raspberry Pi 3. The new Insider Preview of Windows 10 IoT Core, yours for the downloading here, supports the new Pi. Windows 10 IoT Core is a long way short of full Windows comparable to Windows Embedded rather than efforts like Windows 8.1 with Bing intended to run on very cheap hardware. So don't go getting excited about the chance to cook up a fleet of very cheap Raspberry Pi PC replacements. Some may, however, be excited that Microsoft says it's signed up...

    A Raspberry Pi 3 with onboard Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) support has emerged today. The Model B Raspberry Pi 3 will be the first in the family of tiny cheap-and-cheerful ARM-powered computers to feature builtin wireless networking. For previous models, owners have had to make do with wired Ethernet, USB Wi-Fi adapters, or Ethernet-to-wireless gadgets. Having wire-free networking built into the little single-board computer will be a boon. Confirmation of the Pi 3's existence comes from these lab results submitted by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to US communications watchdog the FCC. The documents show the new hardware...

    something with a bit more power that also happens to be based on the x86 architecture? If so, the JaguarBoard currently seeking funding on Kickstarter may be worth a look. The JaguarBoard is an x86-based single board computer that measures just 101.9mm x 64.5mm x 1.6mm. It's powered by Intel's quad-core Atom Z3735G (1.33GHz that boosts up to 1.83GHz) mated with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of local eMMC storage. The board features one HDMI 1.4 port, a 10/100 LAN port, three USB 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm audio jack, two COM ports, an SDIO port, four GPIO pins and an...

    Plovdiv, Bulgaria has a long history of design and innovation going back at least 6000 years to cultures like the Thracians, Celts, and Romans. In the last decade it is also an important center for open hardware innovation -- reviving the lost glory of the computer hardware industry from the former "Soviet bloc countries". One of the companies in the region that has thrived is a 5000 square-meter microelectronics factory which you may have heard of before: Olimex. Olimex has over 25 years of experience in designing, prototyping, and manufacturing printed circuit boards, components, and complete electronic products. Over the...

    When we released Raspberry Pi 2 in February this year, we announced that Microsoft’s Windows 10 IoT Core, a version of Windows 10 for small Internet-of-Things devices that may or may not have a screen, would be available for the device. Since the Windows Insider release of Windows 10 Core in August, we’ve found that lots of people looking for a Pi 2 are arriving at sellers’ websites from sites catering for Windows developers. Many Windows developers are coming to Raspberry Pi for the first time; we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome them, and we hope they’ll encounter much...

    Raspberry Pi is quite a popular little fellow and has finally got its own app store, the Pi Store. The new store can be reached via the web or via the standalone app and gives developers and programers a unique place to offer their apps out to the world. The new Pi Store offers developers a choice to either charge for their apps, or give them for free with a tip jar option in case you want to push some funding into dev that you like. Currently, or to be precise at launch, there are only 23 free titles...

    The Acorn Archimedes range of computers was moderately popular, especially in schools, around the time of the Atari ST and Amiga home computer reign. However these ARM powered computers were quite a lot more expensive than those 16-bit favourites, also no killer app(s) to entice people to move over to the platform left Acorn Archimedes owners to remain a minority. Most 16-bit friends I remember moved to the PC because of Doom, flight simulators and Word. More arty types gravitated to the Apple Mac with its Quark Xpress and Pagemaker and sometimes played Myst. Determined not to follow the pack,...

    Computer engineers combine 64 Raspberry Pis and a Lego-built framework to create a DIY supercomputer.Earlier this year, Raspberry Pi lured the world in with the scent of a $35, linux-powered mini-PC. Since its release, the device has been used for a number of creative purposes. But one team of engineers at the University of Southampton has decided one Raspberry Pi just isn't enough. Instead, the group gathered up a whopping 64 mini-computers and combined them to create one gigantic, super Raspberry Pi.
