The Rasp­berry Pi-pow­ered me­dia

player smashed through its fund­ing

goal in just days

What is it? This Rasp­berry Pi-pow­ered me­dia player smashed through its Kick­s­tarter fund­ing goal in just a few days. Ca­pa­ble of stor­ing up to 2TB of mu­sic, pho­tos and movies on a built-in hard drive (de­pend­ing on model), it can play a huge range of me­dia in Full HD on your TV. It sup­ports ex­ter­nal drives too, and can be con­trolled with univer­sal re­motes or even an iPhone. When’s it due? De­cem­ber 2014. Why are we ex­cited? There are two key things here: first, the funky LED light, which can be cus­tomised. Some­what more prac­ti­cally, the Slice can be an Air­Play re­ceiver, mean­ing you can send video to it from your iOS de­vice or Mac, just like you would to an Ap­ple TV.
