The much hyped and eagerly awaited Raspberry Pi -- a $35 computer the size of a credit card -- is finally moving out of the testing room and into consumers' hands. If you were one of the lucky 10,000 people who were able to pre-order the first run of the Raspberry Pi back in March, you should be receiving your mini-computer by April 20. And by mini, we mean miniature and stripped down. The Raspberry Pi computer is built around the ARM chip that is used in most mobile phones.

Robo-Cheetah doesn't run, it gallops. And it doesn't have a head, because it doesn't need one. It was designed for speed, and it has got plenty of that. Robo-Cheetah can go up to 18 mph, making it the fastest robot on four legs. Robo-Cheetah has completely shattered the previous robotic quadripedal speed record, which was 13.1 mph, set at MIT in 1989, according to a news release on the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) website. The robotic Cheetah was developed by the Massachusetts-based engineering company Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA.

Changing musical tastes, cuts in school budgets for music instruction, the popularity of inexpensive electronic keyboards and tough competition for home entertainment dollars during the recession share the blame. But the Disklavier, Lewis said, is beginning to change that tune.
