Raspberry Pi to receive camera add onYou can say that the Raspberry Pi has proven to be quite the success since it was launched. After all, where else can you get a low powered computer which costs a mere $35 from your bank account? Of course, while the Raspberry Pi is more bare bones than usual as it lacks a case, that does not mean you cannot do much with it. Despite the fact that it runs on a 700MHz ARM-based processor, there is a plethora of connectivity options such as HDMI, USB, and Ethernet ports, and this time around the Raspberry Pi team decided that it is time for some add-on peripherals – with the first of them being a camera (which does seem to be quite the obvious choice in this day and age). A working prototype is already available, where the camera will hook up with the pins left exposed in the center of the Raspberry Pi system board. A 14-megapixel shooter makes up the prototype, but the completed camera will most probably have a lower resolution count in order to stay in line with the budget minded pricing of the Raspberry Pi. No idea on how much the camera add-on will cost when it is available, anyone willing to venture with a guess?
