What is the Raspberry Pi 3? Everything you need to know about the tiny, low-cost computer

An introduction to the Raspberry Pi 3 computer, from how to set it up, to what you can do with it.

From the ebook:

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the latest version of the $35 Raspberry Pi computer. The Pi isn’t like your typical machine, in its cheapest form it doesn’t have a case, and is simply a credit-card sized electronic board — of the type you might find inside a PC or laptop but much smaller.

A surprising amount. As you can see below you can use the Pi 3 as a budget desktop, media center, retro games console, or router for starters. However that is just the tip of the iceberg. There are hundreds of projects out there, where people have used the Pi to build tablets, laptops, phones, robots, smart mirrors, to take pictures on the edge of space, to run experiments on the International Space Station — and that’s without mentioning the wackier creations — self-driving goldfish anyone?
