2. Raspberry Pi 2 and Windows 10:
The Raspberry Pi is a $35 computer chip. The first generation Model B came with a single core ARM processor, 512 MB RAM, 2 USB Ports, 1 HDMI out, Ethernet and a 3.5mm jack: in the size of a credit card. It changed the way computers were used in industries, robots, and for educational processes.
Raspberry Pi’s popularity comes from the fact that it can run over nine OS’s, mostly versions of Linux and can be extremely powerful for programming. With Windows 10, Raspberry Pi 2 expands the possibilities of its use. Seriously, who wouldn’t want a Windows 10 computer of $35?
3. Project Ara update:
The story first started in Jan 2013 with Dave Hakkens idea of "a phone worth keeping” and named it Phonebloks. (Read more about Phonebloks in my previous article). Anyway, Phonebloks is now working with Google on Project Ara: a modular phone where you can literally alter components of the phone to your requirements. Its like Lego for a phone.
Project Ara has gone far from where it began. With partnership from Sennheiser, Blocks, ChipDesign, AT&S and many more, Project Ara is now coming up as a working phone with modules from various companies. Best of all, Ara is coming this year, with beta testing starting in Puerto Rico in a few months.
Again, there is a lot to improve, loads to make and even more to test, however, Google’s determination and Phonebloks support has taken the possibility of the ultimate phone far closer to us than ever before.
