pi-top [4] – inspiring a generation of makers

Latest project from our colleagues at Rockstar Films has been conceiving and creating a launch film for education tech start-up pi-top.

The pi-top 4 is a modular, portable computer with a myriad of applications to aid tech learning.

It was launched at the Bett Show education fare in London in January 2019 by tech TV presenter Jason Bradbury.

Rockstar Creative Director Eugene Riecansky said: "We are very proud to have made this film for the amazing pi-top. It was a pleasure filming with the pi-top team and the inspiring Jason Bradbury at the Bett show. Bring on the revolution."

Powered by the hugely successful Raspberry Pi computer, pi-top [4] easily connects to any PC, Mac, Chromebook, or pi-top, as well as existing screens, keyboards and mice.

Graham Brown-Martin, Chief Education and Product Officer at pi-top, said: "We conceived the pi-top [4] as a modular computer that works anywhere. You can use it at a desk with your existing hardware or strap it to your chest and take readings on the move. It’s your companion for every project."

Jesse Lozano, pi-top Founder and CEO, said: "Our vision for the future of pi-top is a connected community of teachers, creatives, academics and enthusiasts who are motivated by making change in the world. That could be anything from inspiring a pupil to shooting an incredible film with the help of pi-top [4]."
