The Raspberry SAFE comes two different flavours: Red and Blue Raspberry (both Transparent). We have an instruction manual located under our Documentation tab that will walk you through putting it together. Design files are also available as the design is open source.

What's a Raspberry Pi®?

The Raspberry Pi® is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming -
