With the Internet of Things on pace to grow from 6 billion devices in 2016 to over 25 billion in 2020–according to Gartner and IDC–we’re entering an era where technology will become smaller, cheaper, and far more inconspicuous. Perhaps the flagship device of this new era is the Raspberry Pi. Launched by University of Cambridge computer scientists in 2011 as a $35 board for DIY projects, the Raspberry Pi erupted into a global phenomenon that has sold over 12 million units. Originally, the Cambridge team didn’t expect to sell more that a 1,000. Last week, the latest Pi hit the market–the Raspberry Pi Zero W, a $10 device that you can transform into a working computer with a little bit of modest tinkering (and your own keyboard, mouse, and monitor).
