Inspired by the tempescope, The Modern Inventor’s Storm Glass is a weather-simulating lamp that can recreate the weather of any location in the world, all thanks to the help of a Raspberry Pi Zero W. The lamp uses the Weather Underground API, which allows the Raspberry Pi to access current and predicted weather conditions across … Continue reading →
Gone, it would seem, are the days of ‘Hello, My name is…’ stickers and Sharpies. Who wants a simple sticker on their chest, so flat and dull, when they can wear an entire computer, displaying their name and face in pixelated perfection? PiE-Ink Name Badge I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor) … Continue reading →
Back in the mists of time, when Apple released the Apple Watch, there was gentle buzz in the Raspberry Pi community about the Raspberry Pi’s potential in DIY smartwatch projects. That gentle buzzing subsided, like the buzzing of a wasp succumbing to flypaper, pretty quickly once people realised that a regular Raspberry Pi, while very tiny … Continue reading →
Liz: As some of you clever people have pointed out, the new Pi Zero with camera connector might have been designed with one person very much in mind. That person’s Dave “high-altitude ballooning” Akerman. We got one to him before they went on shelves so he could schedule a flight for launch day. Here’s Dave … Continue reading →

Pi Zeros are still selling out as fast as they go on the shelves. If you’re still looking for one, keep polling Adafruit, Micro Center, Pimoroni and The Pi Hut – they’re all getting stock hot from the factory. We hope supply and demand will even out soon!

The New Year 2016 edition of the official Raspberry Pi magazine is out now! For many of our new readers this marks the magazine’s ‘difficult second album’, which begs the question: how do you top the first magazine in history to to give away a free computer on its cover? Obviously, we can’t, but what we can do is … Continue reading →
We gave away something free with our magazine, The MagPi, yesterday. The magazine industry has a concept called “technical sellout”, where more than 80% of copies are bought. You swarmed over UK newsagents and achieved that with The MagPi in less than 12 hours. As far as we know, the last time that happened was with the … Continue reading →
