Gordon Hollingworth, one of the founders and Director of Engineering of Raspberry Pi, sits down with Tech.eu at the API Strategy & Practice conference and discusses the future of the Raspberry Pi. via Tech.eu:
But, of course, children are hardly the only ones using Raspberry Pi to build cool and useful stuff. Legions of ‘makers’ have jumped on the opportunity to purchase the cheap – the most powerful Raspberry Pi costs only $35 – hackable computer to create a wealth of applications and hardware setups on top of it (case in point: behold the ‘smart kegerator’).
Right now, the focus of Hollingworth and his team (which is surprisingly small, only 4-5 engineers strong) is on the improvement of the software. While there may at some point be a next iteration of the Raspberri Pi hardware, it certainly sounds like that’s quite some time away.
