Win A Raspberry Pi Selfie Cam signed by Eben Upton

How would you like to get your hands on a unique prize signed by Raspberry Pi co-founder Eben Upton? 

We are offering the chance for Pi fans across the globe to enter a free prize draw to commemorate the recent fifth birthday of the Raspberry Pi, and ‘Pi Day’, which is celebrated by students and lovers of mathematics each year on March 14th. The date represents 3.14, the approximation to two decimal places of the mathematical constant Pi (Greek letter ‘π’). The first official celebration of Pi Day, on a large scale, was in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium.

Entrants can win a bespoke, one of a kind, Raspberry Pi powered desktop selfie camera, which can be seen in Andrew Back's DesignSpark project article here and has been signed by Eben.

To enter, simply comment on this article with the words “Pi Day Competition” between 9am (GMT) on Tuesday 14th March 2017 and 5pm (GMT) on Tuesday 21st March 2017.

This competition is open to both new and existing members and the winner will be selected at random by 1st April 2017. 

Raspberry Pi was launched on 29th February 2012 by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, with its name derived from the fact that there were a number of early home microcomputers named after fruit, such as Apple and Apricot. The Pi element of the name is derived from the Python programming language used by the board.

Originally set up to promote and teach basic computer science in schools and colleges around the UK, the initial version of the Raspberry Pi ranged in specifications and capabilities. Its low cost and ease of use made it an instant hit with makers and enthusiasts, as well as its intended audience of students. Now on the third incarnation of the board, the Foundation has sold more than 11 million units worldwide, earning the Raspberry Pi the title of the best-selling British computer.

The latest model in the range is the Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module, which marks a new direction for the product as it is aimed directly at the professional embedded design engineer for integration into their product designs. The Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module will be supported until 2023, along with hardware documentation such as datasheets, schematics and application notes.

Good Luck!
