There’s a new kind of Pi invading living rooms, workshops and garages everywhere, and it costs just $5: the Raspberry Pi Zero. It’s a little bit different to what you’re used to and an incredibly capable little thing – swipe forward a couple of pages to find all the key facts. When you’re ready, check out this month’s big feature to find 50 ways that you can master the new device. The great thing is that while some of those tips and tricks are specific to the Zero, the majority will actually work with any model of Pi, from A to 2B. Also this month we’ve got a great project to show you that combines LEGO and the Internet of Things into a mini smart city that you can interact…

faq raspberry pi zero

What happened to the Raspberry Pi 3? Well, calling this the Raspberry Pi 3 would imply it’s more powerful than the Raspberry Pi 2. It’s not really an upgrade – more of an awesome downgrade. So what does that mean? The Raspberry Pi Zero isn’t as powerful as the Raspberry Pi 2, and a few bits and pieces like the USB 2.0 and Ethernet ports have been removed. The whole point of it is to make the computer as cheap as humanly possible, and by selling it for just $5, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has definitely succeeded! $5? That is awesome. But it’s not as good as other Raspberry Pi models? Depends what you mean by ‘good’. The Raspberry Pi Zero is on about the same level as the original Raspberry Pi Model B –…

50 ways to master your pi

Pi Zero Every single tip here will work on your Pi Zero; just keep an eye out for the ‘Pi Zero’ flash, indicating which are relevant to the Pi Zero only.

How long have you been working on this project? I would say since September, when I really launched my blog. My wife got me a LEGO train set for Christmas last year and it got me back into LEGO. That’s really how my engineering brain started as a kid – it was all about LEGOs. At the same time, I work for Cisco Meraki and we do a lot of stuff in the cloud – wireless and switching technologies – and the hot topic in Cisco is the Internet of Things, how it’s going to be a multi-trillion dollar business over the next couple of years, and I wanted to wrap my head around it. It’s one of those elusive terms, like ‘cloud’. What does ‘cloud’ really mean, right? So I started…

monitor cpu temperature with dizmo

The Raspberry Pi is an exciting prospect for people interested in the Internet of Things – size, power and flexibility make it perfect for powering any Internet-connected device around the home or office. Setting up a Raspberry Pi to be the brain of an IoT network isn’t exactly a case of selecting the right software in Raspbian, though; there’s a lot of custom work you need to do to get one going. This is where Dizmo comes in, enabling you to control IoT objects using an online API that you can then access remotely. To show you how it works, we’re going to have it track the Raspberry Pi’s core temperature. In this tutorial we are going to work entirely over SSH, but you can easily do this straight on the…

“There are several different Python modules available that can do this speech-to-text (STT) translation” In the last issue we looked at how we could have our Raspberry Pis listen to the world around them. This is the first step in building our own version of the J.A.R.V.I.S system made famous in the Iron Man movies. The next step is to try and make sense of what we may have just heard. In general, this is called speech recognition and it is a very large and active area of research. Every major mobile phone operating system has applications trying to take advantage of this mode of human interaction. There are also several different Python modules available that can do this speech-to-text (STT) translation step. In this second article, we will look at…
