The combination of VNC Connect and Raspberry Pi offers a unique and flexible solution to design and build solutions limited only by the imagination, from VDI to medical ventilators.

The Raspberry Pi is an incredibly versatile piece of equipment, used by businesses and hobbyists all over the world to monitor and manage equipment or learn new skills. When combined with VNC Connect remote access software, I believe that the applications are endless.” comments Richard Curtin, SVP of Technology at OKdo.
