In a world full of expensive, "closed" consumer devices emerges the Raspberry Pi, a low-cost credit-card sized computer that can be plugged into a TV and a keyboard.

The hope is to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming, but it also serves as an ideal platform for hobbyists to try out new ideas.

Eben Upton, Founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, will talk about the transition from large, high performance systems to cheap, low power and potentially disposable hardware.

But what does the future hold for these innovative and disruptive products? Will threats to openness result in complete closure of future hardware platforms?
