We're giving away a RaspberryPi!

And the winner is... here!


How do you fancy getting your hands on the hottest piece of tech of the moment... the exciting RaspberryPi mini computer?

If you've been following the device's birth, you'll know it's finally here but EXTREMELY hard to get hold of!

I was lucky enough to snag a unit from the early deliveries... but rather than keeping it for myself (i've come to the sad realisation I don't actually have time to develop on it as i'd like to), I want to give it away to one of you lot. Really! :)

Nothing complicated here... you simply need to follow a couple of Twitter accounts and retweet the competition... and optionally post a quick comment in this thread to get an extra chance!

So, to enter, use the widget below...

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Easy eh? :)

The competition closes at 12:01 EST on 13/05/12. :)

The competition terms are as follows...
  • The competition is open to everyone worldwide!
  • The judge's decision is final, no correspondence will be entered into.
  • The winner will receive a RaspberryPi, shipped globally. The recipient will be responsible for any incurred custom fees. The unit is brand new and contains only the main board itself.
  • The competition is open until 12:01 EST on 13/05/12.
  • The winner will be notified by e-mail.
  • If you enter and win, please don't stick it up on eBay. We're excited to learn about what you do with it, and hope you come back and share your experiences.
  • This is the first time we've run a competition via the third-party 'Rafflecopter' service. We're interested to hear how you find it!
Thanks for being part of the MoDaCo community and GOOD LUCK! :)

HTC One X, Desire, and Hero. Random fact? Errrr... five pet goats (originally two, then one died and we bought four more), named after drinks with names that are pairs - Dandelion and Burdock, Rum and Coke, Milk and Shake.

Warm milk goes well with raspberry pi(e).

Wouldn't mind getting one of these to port Android too.

I'm using a Nexus S, a Huawei U8800, a ZTE Blade, a HTC Tattoo and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. And I have two cats.

Awesome! <3

My Nexus S already can't wait for its new friend. I'd give it a name and make it run Android, or some Linux, or everything. I'd hook it up to my toaster.

Hey!! Great idea Paul!
I'm currently using a Orange San Francisco (aka.. ZTE Blade)
I was trying to order a RasPi when it went online... so I'm on the list like sooooooo many others...!

Random fact... I'm currently working on a Self watering system for my plants using a Arduino... :)
And when I get the RasPi, I'm looking forward to intergrating it with the Arduino...
