1m Raspberry Pi computers have now been built in the UK, as global sales hit 1.75m

The one millionth Raspberry Pi computer manufactured in Britain has rolled off the production line. The credit card-sized machine, which costs as little as $25, has become a bit of a cult hit recently for hobbyists and kids who are interested in coding and the intricacies of computer hardware.

Production of the Raspberry Pi originally began in China, but moved to a plant owned by Sony in South Wales back in September 2012.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

All told, 1.75 million Raspberry Pi computers have been sold worldwide. Sony was kind enough to build a gold-plated case for the one millionth UK edition too: “We’ll be displaying it proudly here at Pi Towers,” the company said.

Take a bow, Raspberry Pi. That’s quite an achievement.
