I'm going to describe how to make an inexpensive (20€), small and portable tool kit with the essential tools for some electronics experimenting or some practical lectures at the university's labs.

First Impressions on the Raspberry Pi

Hi again! A few days ago I made a post about the Raspberry Pi board that I recently got in the mail. I only made a short description of the board since I hadn't test it at the time. I still haven't much to say but I have finally tested it and I'll share my first impressions of the board.

The world famous Raspberry Pi (model B) has arrived! :) I thought that I would have to wait 1 or 2 months from the order date to get one but happily it only took 2 or 3 days! RS was extremely fast shipping it :)

For the few of you who still haven't heard about the Raspberry Pi, it is a full computer with the size of a credit card (85.60mm x 53.98mm x 17mm)! It's just one of those incredible things that will change the world as we know it :).

Now you may be thinking "Wow, that must cost a lot of money!..." but the size of the board isn't the only small thing about it! It only cost me 40€ with shipping included (from UK to Portugal) :) . Here are the full specs:
