      A Raspberry Pi is a very small and cheap computer (it’s about £26 the last time I checked), that was designed so that school-age people can learn how to program a computer, without messing up the family PC!
      I use them as part of a distributed control system – I can control many R.Pi (connected to the internet) to help control particle accelerators.
