If you have an idea of something cool you want to do with a Raspberry Pi, and you promise to come back to the next Raspberry Jam (in September) and show us what you did, then you could be going home with a Raspberry Pi!

Allocation will be based on a final decision by the judges, and will require a 10,000Kw Deposit.
