Craving some Raspberry Pi, but don’t know where to start? Let Matt Richardson, MAKE Contributing Editor, ITP Resident Research Fellow and co-author of Getting Started with Raspberry Pi help you get started.

At Maker Faire NYC, Matt explained to an interested crowd what a Raspberry Pi is and what you need to get started. He describes one of his own projects, a bicycle headlight that projects speed or other information onto the road ahead of the rider. That’s just one of many ideas people have used the Raspberry Pi for.

An inexpensive single board computer, the Raspberry Pi includes integrated USB ports, Ethernet for getting online, video outputs, and input/output pins for interacting with your project. Retailing for less than $40, the Raspberry Pi lets you tinker with a computer without risking a more expensive computer or laptop.

(This is one of four times Matt presented this talk during Maker Faire weekend, thus ‘Raspberry Pi III’ on the video title. I felt this version of the video captured his content best.)
