Upgrade a RiscPC to full HD graphics, HDMI out, USB and RISC OS 5 from £10! PiPOD is a custom hardware design that allows a Raspberry Pi to be mounted in a podule slot in a RiscPC and A7000 and operate the two systems simultaneously - running RISC OS in a window within RISC OS. PiPOD is also an excellent way of dipping your feet into the 32bit RISC OS world without losing compatibility with older 26bit software. PiPOD comes in a variety of models, from the bare metal podule plate alone, to a fully working pre- configured system that you can slot in and go. RISCOSbits can even create a custom option just for you. If you’re worried about moving from your ageing Acorn machine to a more modern option, then this is the solution for you - it’s simply the best of both RISC OS worlds in one machine. System Requirements Networked RISC OS machine with spare Podule slots (backplane not required) HDMI monitor (or HDMI-VGA adaptor) for full HD graphics USB capable mouse and keyboard for set up Ethernet connection 10/100 (100Mbps NIC preferred but not essential) from your host machine Access to a spare ethernet port on the same network as the host machine.
