The updated version, Raspberry Pi 3, is now faster and equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, features missing from previous versions. The computer can help tinkerers turn home appliances into Web-enabled smart devices like doorbells and temperature sensors. You can even monitor your bathroom.

The no-frills computer comes with a 64-bit CPU and costs $35.

Previous versions have been used to teach basic computer programming and allow users to develop games and novelty gadgets, including toys and apparel that can light up.

Raspberry Pi runs on a scaled down-version of Microsoft's Windows 10 and requires some tech savviness to operate.
