The tiny ARM-powered computer selling for between $35 and $50 around the world is making it possible for anyone to afford a computer and learn how to program.
However, until now, you’ve always had to bring your own keyboard, monitor and network connection.
Meltwater has come up with a simple method for using any notebook or computer to act as a remote terminal for the Pi – all you need is a network cable between the two, that plus the Raspberry Pi operating system on an SD card plus a 5VDC/700mA power supply running the Pi.
And no, you don’t need a special ‘crossover’ cable – a standard Ethernet patch cable works just fine, according to Meltwater.
