It is exactly the same size and weight as a soccer ball. It is easily controllable via a smartphone and is compatible with iOS and Android.

  • $5 ARM-based Raspberry Pi Zero Suits Open Source Fans, If They Get One

    The Raspberry Pi Zero, a small ARM-based, Linux-friendly computing device that costs a mere $5, may be an obvious stocking stuffer this Christmas. But obtaining one will be tough, as all the devices sold out within a day of launch on Nov. 26.
