BBC gives naked computers to kids (hmm, code for something?)

We got our fathers to smoke cigars so that we could have the hinged cedar boxes to host a battery, key, and light, plus a morse buzzer if you were rich. When 'transistors' came along we stuck one of those in our Crystal Set and grew up.

This seems to be the same sort of thing, but may be too complicated for the target age group. PS - did you know that an e-bayed cigar box makes a nice traditional home for a Raspberry Pi?
