Buko Pi Project

Welcome to the Buko Pi Project Site

What is the Buko Pi Project?

The Buko Pi Project aims to develop low-cost computer system to be used in a classroom environment. This project will be using the  Raspberry Pi, a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does.

What are the thing I can do with Buko Pi?

The Buko Pi can be used in many computer applications. For teachers, it will be an educational tool for learning,  spreadsheets, word-processing, courseware and more. For students, we want to see it being used by kids to learn programming, web publishing and graphics design or simple use it as a learning tool.


Who are the beneficiaries of this Project?

At this point we are targeting to provide Buko Pi (for FREE) to Elementary and High School students in the Province of Abra.


My school is interested in this project, what should I do to get Buko Pi?

You can submit  your intention to be part of this project by sending an email to ericbringas@aemestech.com. Include a profile of your school and a plan on how to use Buko Pi in your classroom.


Who is behind the Buko Pi Project?

This project is being developed and funded by Aemes Technologies, a technology company based in San Diego California. Aemes Technologies has been providing Technology solutions specializing in Education and Health Care.


Why the name Buko Pi?

We wanted to have a Filipino sounding name of the project thus we decided to call it Buko (coconut) Pi Project.


How can i contribute to this project?

We try to avoid soliciting financial contributions at this time but we welcome contributor to this project by sharing us your thoughts on what practical applications we can develop for Buko Pi. We also welcome programmers/developers to help us in customizing Buko Pi for our students. Please leave your comment here.


I have more question to ask who can I contact?

you can contact Aemes Technologies CEO Eric Bringas at ericbringas@aemestech.com or just leave your comment here.

  2. this is the best news that was printed here in A.COM. it would be a boon to the students here in our province,for we lag behind in information technology compared to other provinces. if the exchange rate of a dollar is 45 pesos then it will cost 1,575 pesos each.HOPING that our congresswoman joy VALERA BERNOS will hear about this project so that she can DONATE some portion of her CDF for the good of her provincemate.agyaman kami apo sysop,may your tribe increase!

  3. I apologize that I have not been updating you on where the project is. I have been busy with other projects that need my attention (got to earn some bucks!). I am also in the process of moving to a new place.

    Meantime, the raspberry pi project is taking the world by storm. for those who are interested, check out http://www.raspberrypi.org for awesome project ideas.

    There’s also a FREE Rasberry Pi Magazine http://www.themagpi.com/ that you can download. This magazine contains lots of information about this device.

    More to come…
