Our friends at Adafruit recently did a deal with some of our other friends at Arduino to build genuine licensed Arduino boards at their insanely awesome factory in downtown NYC. Arduino have been having a spot of bother with their original manufacturing partner recently, so this is great news. Here’s a picture of Massimo Banzi from... Continue reading
Welcome to another edition of the official Raspberry Pi magazine! As always, The MagPi is free to download, and comes brimming with project ideas, tutorials, news, and much, much more. My favourites this month? The clock hack, the 0.25 scale, Pi-powered racing car (that gets up to 150kmph despite its adorable teenyness), and best of... Continue reading
We had mail this morning suggesting we watch the trailer for the new Point Break reboot closely. (Keep your eyes peeled at 1:23.) When we started the Raspberry Pi Foundation in 2012, we thought we’d just be teaching kids to code. It’s kind of discombobulating to find that we’ve been making movie props too. (If that clip...

Massive thanks to Clive for babysitting this blog (he’s been both writing and editing) while I was away. Any relaxation I was still feeling from the vacation evaporated the moment I saw my inbox. It was good while it lasted. Regular readers will know that my favourite Raspberry Pi projects are often the musical ones. So I was... Continue reading
When we were at SXSW Create in Austin back in March, teaching hundreds of kids about Bash script, we met a young lady called Katie. Katie looks unassuming, but she’s actually an evil genius. Some of the other kids we talked to during the three-day event hadn’t done a huge amount with a Raspberry Pi before (although... Continue reading
We’ve just spotted a third-party add-on for your Pi and Camera Board which we think you’ll find really useful.   The ribbon cable that comes with the Raspberry Pi Camera Module is, for reasons of signal integrity, not very long. In most cases, that doesn’t present a problem. But if you’re wanting to take pictures of something... Continue reading
Password security is a big deal. No more so than when you’ve got smart kids who have learned about SSH, with a Raspberry Pi in their bedroom. The kids from Gurgleapps would like to show you what they’ve learned recently about the shell. We are impressed, and are reminded that we all need to change... Continue reading
I can’t believe we’re on our third issue of the new MagPi already. Your free Raspberry Pi magazine is ready to download here. This month’s magazine is a doozy, with 70 pages of tutorials, some incredible projects to build, reviews, and much, much more. One feature in this month’s magazine has me jumping up and...

Back in February, when we launched Raspberry Pi 2, the sharp-eyed among you will have noticed the folks at Microsoft making an announcement about bringing Windows 10 for IoT to the Raspberry Pi. We’re excited to share that it landed today – along with a ridiculously cool demo. The chap in the video is HoloLens... Continue reading
The sharp-eyed among you will have noticed that a couple of months back, we were advertising for a new CEO of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.   Today we’re really excited to announce that Philip Colligan will be joining us in July as the new CEO of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.  Philip will be responsible for...
