Let me start by saying that I am responsible for the title of this blog post. The build’s creator, the wonderful Nicole He, didn’t correct me on this when I contacted her, sooooo… Anyway, this is one project that caused the residents of Pi Towers (mainly Liz and me) to stare at it open-mouthed, praying that...

We are confident that nobody out there has built a working MAME cabinet that’s any smaller than this. Adafruit’s Phillip Burgess posted this project on Twitter last week, and you guys went absolutely nuts for it. So he’s produced a video, and a quick and dirty explainer so you can make your own. Really: it’s teeny. That... Continue reading
Over in a land of palm trees and breezy sunsets, Adafruit’s Noe Ruiz has been making things. (My Noe story: I waltzed up to him in the Adafruit factory once, grabbed his hand, pumped his arm up and down and said: “SO good to see you again. How’s your brother?” He looked deeply confused. Turns out we’d never... Continue reading
Raspberry Pi integrated into the world of art. I hadn’t come across much of this before, and I like it a lot. As a self-proclaimed ‘artist of stuff’, it’s always exciting to see something arty that calls to the maker inside. With Glaciers, NYC-based Zach Gage has achieved exactly that. Glaciers was an art instillation... Continue reading
When we launched Raspberry Pi Zero last November, it’s fair to say we were blindsided by the level of demand. We immediately sold every copy of MagPi issue 40 and every Zero in stock at our distributors; and every time a new batch of Zeros came through from the factory they’d sell out in minutes. To...

We see a lot of Raspberry Pis being used as security cameras – check out this fine example that we blogged back in 2013 – they’re a cheap and effective solution for people who want to deter burglars and vandals. The good folks at Adafruit had one of those ideas that makes you slap yourself in the... Continue reading
You can do an awful lot with a seven-segment display, a dial and some imagination. Happily for us all, the good folks at Adafruit have metaphorical and literal buckets of all those things, and have come up with a project which is completely customisable, a lot of fun, and should hopefully teach you a thing or two...

Don’t stress about it: like you, nobody here has finished their Christmas shopping either. Here’s our annual roundup of the best presents for the Raspberry Pi fan in your life, so you can make them grateful to you all year long. First, and most obviously, we recommend you buy a Raspberry Pi 2 for any Pi-lover who... Continue reading
Before we get to the meat of today’s post, we’ve two bits of news. Just over an hour ago we watched the Soyuz rocket carrying British ESA astronaut Tim Peake, who will be in charge of the two Astro Pis on the ISS, lift off. The Soyuz will dock with the ISS around 17:24 GMT today: please join us following... Continue reading
When we released Raspberry Pi 2 in February this year, we announced that Microsoft’s Windows 10 IoT Core, a version of Windows 10 for small Internet-of-Things devices that may or may not have a screen, would be available for the device. Since the Windows Insider release of Windows 10 Core in August, we’ve found that... Continue reading
