What shape do you want your Pi?

Raspberry Pi has been one of those events that leave you breathless. You will recall that the board was designed as a teaching aid, to get people interested in building systems. However, according to the Raspberry Pi Foundation a fair number of the over seven million boards that have been sold have been used in commercial projects. The feed-back they are getting is that while the standard board is great for getting prototypes up and working, for volume productions, for volume production, there was a need for a more flexible approach.

To meet this Element 14 is now offering, worldwide, a Raspberry Pi customisation service. You will be able to choose things like board layout, add or remove interfaces , headers and connectors and make changes to the memory.  It all looks rather fun.
