Calling the space an "experimental store," the brand behind the pocket-sized computer is opening a hands-on physical location in its U.K. city of origin

For those who love to tinker with technology, computer company Raspberry Pi had the hardware that allowed for cool new applications and inventions. However, getting one’s hands on any of its parts could be tricky, since they were sold only by authorized Pi resellers or Amazon.

Now, however, there is a physical store where customers can go to check out the latest from the brand as well as purchase all the gear they need in one place. Raspberry Pi’s brick-and-mortar location is in Cambridge, England, and it isn’t just a place to buy hardware in person: The store has computers set up for live demos as well as hands-on stations.

And while the small computers themselves are only $35, the store is less about making a profit and more about piquing interest from passersby, aiming to engage new customers, as well as give its loyal community a place to convene. “There’s always a risk you can get complacent about your customers, but a physical store means we have a place for people, who are curious about Raspberry Pi, to experience it,” Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton tells the BBC.
