Check out this series of photos from Nick Heath of the Raspberry Pi lines at Sony, from TechRepublic:
This is where life begins for many Raspberry Pi boards, at a Sony factory in Pencoed in South Wales.
The factory has been making the boards since August this year and now produces up to 3,000 Raspberry Pi boards every day. From January next year the factory will step up to 4,000 boards each day.
A total of seventeen staff work on the factory floor manufacturing and assembling the boards, with one board produced every seven and a half seconds.
