In celebration of the first anniversary of Raspberry Pi, RS Components, one of the two main manufacturing distributors for Raspberry Pi, is releasing a limited edition run of 1000 blue Raspberry Pis complete with matching blue cases from One Nine Design.
Ironically, blue is the traditional color used for raspberry flavoring. Raspberry-flavored slushies and Jolly Ranchers are both blue. Unfortunately most people won't be able to get their hands on one of these special edition Raspberry Pis. Most are heading to charitable causes, though some are being given away in a competition.
For four weeks from today, everyone who tweets #bluepi to @RSElectronics along with a suggestion for uses for a blue Pi, or with a great Pi design idea, will be entered into a competition to win one. (Please tweet your entries to @RSElectronics - don't leave your entry here in the comments, because it won't be counted.) Every week, the top ten entries will be selected by a panel from RS and the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and those ten winners will be sent a blue Pi. Easy! There will be another competition when these four weeks are up - RS will be running Blue Pi events until June.
