Over previous years we’ve hosted, attended and worked events across Lancashire and the country. Hopefully, in the future, we’ll be in a position to do so once again, and something that launched earlier this week has got us a little more excited about that prospect.
The Raspberry Pi 400, takes the compact form factor of the Raspberry pi with the latest version (4) and merges it directly into a keyboard, providing the ultimate in convenience.
When it comes to our involvement in events, our roles can vary rather broadly, from live blogging an event, to providing on-screen presentations, videos and graphics, to the classic Twitter wall – something I’m discovering the Raspberry Pi 400 is perfect for.
But why use the Raspberry Pi 400 over using your laptop? For us, it’s down to the situations when we may need to leave our equipment in an environment we may not be in control of and a keyboard is a less attractive proposition to a much more expensive laptop.
It also packs a punch – for such a small computer it offers a Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.8GHz processor and 4GB LPDDR4-3200 ram, so the browser applications we’d be using it can effortlessly handle.Read next Locking Down Twitter
