To celebrate the launch, we're also launching an exciting photo competition with a whole load of Raspberry Pi accessories up for grabs. You can read the rules of the competition here.
We also spotted the BBC's technology corespondent Rory Cellan-Jones getting to grips with the Pi Camera. Although Rory notes that he won't be entering our photo competition, we think his dog would make a fantastic entry for people and pets!
