What is Raspberry Pi?

Raspberry Pi is a mini computer that connects to your tv or computer monitor for various projects. Raspberry Pi allows users to explore computing, coding, and programming in languages like Python and R. The Raspberry Pi can be used for just about anything from HD video, to emulation of vintage video games. The possibilities are infinite.
