It turns out that the sneak peak picture published yesterday on the RISCOSbits Twitter account was, in fact, not the PiPOD that I speculated it might be. Another picture has been posted, with the text “Another sneak preview of that related thing for the show. It is NOT the , Sherlock!”

This second picture shows the edge of a case with a number of ports visible, so perhaps the mystery new product is a case for a Raspberry Pi, or a complete system with a Pi at its heart. Either way, I say we nuke the site from orbit you come along to the show tomorrow – it’s the only way to be sure!

Andy Marks has posted a sneak peak picture to the RISCOSBits Twitter account, along with the hashtag #neverbeforeseen – but what the picture clearly shows is the box that the humble Raspberry Pi is usually supplied in, which is something that just about everyone interested in these things has seen. The picture, he says, is only a clue, and this is something else for the London Show on Saturday. So what gives?

The answer is probably a hitherto unannounced product called the PiPOD – a means to allow the Raspberry Pi to be mounted in a podule slot in either a RiscPC or A7000, with both the old and new systems able to be run simultaneously, with one running in a window on the other – presumably using VNC.
