You may have heard about an issue with the new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B computers which were released recently. If you haven’t, the story is that the Pi will unexpectedly reboot if a camera flash is triggered too close to the computer. Apparently it’s caused by the photoelectric effect, which is very interesting. The camera has to be relatively close for it to work though and I don’t think it’s a huge issue. Cool though!

My conclusion: the Pi is shy, and there’s nothing wrong with being shy.

I managed to replicate the issue, and I have posted a video of it on YouTube.
