Targeting new demographics

Raspberry Pi, makers of the popular open source electronic device that powers many DYI smart products (including many 3D printing related or 3D printed products), opened their first physical Raspberry Pi store in Cambridge, UK. The main goal of the shop is to raise awareness around the system’s computing possibilities and what users can do with it.

Online-only availability tends to target specific groups that are already familiar with the technology and know what they are looking for. The shop, on the other hand, is intended more as a showroom and could help to attract new demographics. The city of Cambridge, with just 12.500 people and the headquarters of several hi-tech companies is expected to be an ideal testing ground.

Raspberry Pi store

The Raspberry Pi Foundation provides low-cost, high-performance computers that people use to learn, solve problems and generally have fun. The foundation also provides outreach and education to help more people access computing and digital making, develop free resources to help people learn about computing and how to make things with computers, and train educators who can guide other people to learn.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn how computers work, how to manipulate the electronic world around them, and how to program.
