A new $25 computer being developed by researchers at Cambridge University's computer science department is aimed at helping young students learn computer programming. The so-called Raspberry Pi is the size of a credit card and essentially is just a motherboard. "Our dream is that the Raspberry Pi gets to a large number of schoolchildren and that a fraction of them learn how to program. They will become the next generation of innovators who will stimulate the economy," co-founder and lecturer at the university, Robert Mullins, said.
