While browsing the Halloween section of my local supermarket, I stumbled across this adorable pumpkin light for £2. Given the fact I had a £2 coin in my pocket and an itching for a Halloween hack project, it came home with me at once. You’ll see, if you look hard enough, the small orange LED... 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...

Frederick Vandenbosch has been at it again. This time, inspired by watching his kids use tablet devices, he’s built a gesture control device for his TV, which manages to be both functional and very elegant. At the core of this device is a Model A Raspberry Pi, and a Pimoroni Skywriter HAT. The Skywriter is... Continue reading

Liz: Here’s a guest post from our friend Paul at Pimoroni, who has a really exciting Kickstarter to share. You know Paul’s work already: he designed the Raspberry Pi logo, and he’s the brain behind the ridiculously successful Pibow case. Over to Paul! When I was in nursery school, our class had a BBC Micro. One day, it was... Continue reading

Our good friends at Pimoroni have made a very sparkly HAT. We thought you’d like to see where unicorns come from. The Unicorn HAT is available at Pimoroni for £24 – get them while they’re warm (but not hot)! Clive’s busy writing a graphics resource for learners featuring this particular HAT – watch this space...

Today it has the likes of Pimoroni, who recently moved in to a huge new factory, making cases, HATs, media centres and more. The University of Sheffield has been undertaking a number of Raspberry Pi projects... Continue reading
