1. Innovation of the Year: Raspberry Pi
The first hardware from the UK home computing industry to send shockwaves through the world since the ZX Spectrum, the Raspberry Pi is the little computer that can. Full of Heath Robinson charm, it looks like a fistful of electronics and a couple of output ports nailed to a credit card and is priced at 26 quid; just add control devices, a TV and power supply and you’re away. The Pi puts coding and device building within the reach of anyone; its impact could be nothing less than revolutionary.
