If like us you are a fan of the new Raspberry Pi PC which has been designed to be sold for around $25 and make PC’s available to all. You might be interested to know that Raspberry Pi have now selected a winner for their logo competition and the winning design is a perfect match for the $25 Raspberry Pi PC.
The winning logo was created by Paul Beech, and received the largest number of votes from the panel of judges due to its graphical simplicity, its adaptability and ease of reproduction. Congratulations Paul!
Judges liked the use of the raspberry shape used in the logo which is modelled after a 3d buckyball, and a nice reminder of π. The designer also pointed out that a buckyball has 32 faces, and that 11 are visible in the logo – the Raspberry Pi has a 32-bit processor and an ARM11 on board, making a perfect fit for the device.
The winner Paul Beech is set to receive a Model B version of the Raspberry Pi worth $35 and of course official bragging rights. Also check out the Raspberry Pi supercomputer that has been created using 64 Raspberry Pi computers and a bucket of Lego.
