The Raspberry Pi Foundation, makers of tiny computers for tinkerers, have released a new product: the Raspberry Pi 400.
It’s a Raspberry Pi 4 crammed into a keyboard.
The keyboard retains nearly all of the Raspberry Pi’s functionality, including the GPIO header pins, SD card slot, and a litany of ports. However, it’s missing a full-sized HDMI output — meaning you might need an adapter to hook this up to a monitor.
In December 2018, Bryan Boyer published “Creating a Very Slow Movie Player.” It’s a wonderful essay about light and Brasília and architecture. Boyer describes building an e-paper display that shows films at 24 frames per hour, rather than 24 frames per second. So it would take about a year to play the 142 minutes of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Every gadget has a story. A new publication from Medium about consumer technology.
