As you watch the World Cup remember that most of the TV cameras used by UK broadcasters are produced by Sony at Pencoed in Wales - and the production line for these was seen by members of SWORDS who visited Sony in May. As well as producing a wide range of high quality broadcast equipment the same factory is home to the production line for the low cost educational computer Raspberry Pi - and in the last two years well over 1M have been produced.The Raspberry Pi Foundation, is a charity whose aim is to "promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing." David Braben was awarded his OBE in the June Birthday Honours List.
