14 and 15 million Raspberry Pis in total @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi
Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton talks sales numbers, proudest moments, community projects, and Raspberry Pi 4 [Q&A].
BN: The last time we did a Q&A with you (four years ago now), you’d just sold your millionth Pi. You’ve come a long way since then — how many Pis have you sold now?
EU: Wow. I remember how amazed we were to get to a million (and indeed how amazed we were to get to 100k). We’ve sold between 14 and 15 million Raspberry Pis in total. Breakdown is something like:
Model B: 3 million units.
Model B+: 2 million units.
Model 2B: 3 million units.
Model 3B: 5 million units.
Others: 1-2 million units.

CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
