Phil Atkin's gorgeous version of the Doctor Who theme, made with synthesiser software on a Pi Zero, is a wonderful tribute to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
I am an unabashed synthesiser nerd. I grew up in the 1980s on a rich diet of Gary Numan, the Pet Shop Boys and Erasure, and had my own Roland Juno 60 (approximately fourth hand and very battered) in my bedroom. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I learned about sine waves. Phil Atkin, who you’ve …

Do you know a young person who would like to send their code to space with Tim Peake?

Our two Astro Pi flight units, named Ed and Izzy, are in orbit on the International Space Station, and Ed is running experiments designed by UK school students right now. If you're aged 18 or under and living in the UK, you can join in our new coding challenges for the chance to run  #YourCodeInSpace  too.

And people of all ages, anywhere in the world, can take part in an ISS environmental monitoring experiment that will run on the Astro Pi units during Tim's mission: click through for more information and resources.
Meet Ed and Izzy, the two Astro Pi flight units that are in orbit on the ISS right now. Ed is already running experiments designed by school students, and our new challenges give UK school-age students another chance to send their code to space!

+The MagPi issue #42 is here, stuffed full of projects for Pi Zero and its bigger siblings! You can buy print copies in UK stores or in our Swag Store, get a print or digital subscription or, as always, download a completely free copy from The MagPi's website.

And you can STILL start a new subscription with issue #40, with a free Pi  Zero and a free cable bundle, if you want to! Just make sure you select the right option when you sign up online or over the phone.
Hi there, Rob from The MagPi again! It’s been a couple of months since we launched issue 40 with the Raspberry Pi Zero attached to the front of it. Since then we’ve seen some excellent projects flying around the internet as you all figure out amazing uses for the tiny Pi. To inspire you to …

The Zero is a hard item to find for a reasonable price. Always out of stock.

People are using Raspberry Pi to monitor their broadband connection and bug their ISP when it falls short of what they pay for.
Outages with your broadband can drive you to frustration, but you can use the Raspberry Pi, and command line scripting to monitor it.

+Brian Thomas​ I recently bundled all my Internet connections (as a step in ditching cable and DSL in a few months) which will leave 100+ mbit with like millisecond latency on the first hops. But the Linux VMs will certainly be able to measure this.

We've moved, 65% of our stuff is still in plastic teacrates, and there's pink bubblewrap EVERYWHERE: today's blog post is about why there isn't a proper blog post today.
No proper blog post today. Why? We’re living out of boxes, I can’t find my coffee mug, and I’m having to use my phone to tether to the internet. We should be back to normal tomorrow!

Raspberry Pi will have a new home in Cambridge from Monday, big enough to accommodate our growing team. We're all packed up and ready to go.
A momentous day: after four years in Mount Pleasant House in Cambridge, we’ve finally outgrown all the available space (insofar as on some days we’re having to sit on each others’ knees), so we’re moving to bigger premises near Cambridge Station. A bit of housekeeping: we won’t have internet after about 11.30am today, and we don’t …

This is an impressively sophisticated Raspberry Pi build: a DIY underwater drone (aka ROV, or Remotely Operated underwater Vehicle), tested down to 12m depth in a lake in the Netherlands, but designed for deeper.
We found something rather fabulous on YouTube. Niels Affourtit has taken his home-made underwater drone (or ROV – Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle) from bathtub tests to real-world deployment in a great big lake somewhere in the Netherlands. It’s a sophisticated build – the video below says that it uses an HD camera, the Raspberry Pi, …

GPIO Zero makes it easy to get started with controlling things like LEDs and motors from your Raspberry Pi: it's a friendly, simple interface to everyday components connected to the Pi's GPIO pins.

If you're a beginner, or you want to help beginners get going with this kind of exciting project, this introduction to GPIO Zero from its creator, Raspberry Pi's Ben Nuttall, is a great guide to what you can do. It includes plenty of examples to help you get up and running.
One of the most exciting starter activities to do with a Raspberry Pi is something you can't do on your regular PC or laptop, such as flash an LED or control a motor. In this month's Raspberry Pi column, Ben Nuttall introduces a few projects to get you started.

Tiburcio de la Carcova builds a wonderul miniature Galaga cabinet in this four-minute video found by +HACKADAY: laser-cut plywood, custom 3D-printed parts, bespoke aluminium panels and all. You'll be lucky to spot the Pi inside it, but the skill and dedication on display here are astonishing.

Two intrepid Raspberry Pi computers have been specially equipped and tested ready for spaceflight, and they're in orbit on the International Space Station with British ESA astronaut Tim Peake right now. Watch the animated story of our Astro Pi flight units, Ed and Izzy, as they prepare for switch-on very soon.

Zheng Wang has built a self-driving car using a Raspberry Pi! OK, so it's a little on the small side. There's a neat demo to watch, and a very detailed write-up digging into all the maths behind the navigation.
Full disclosure: This car is perhaps not quite as big as the car you envisioned when you read the headline. Zheng Wang from Bridgwater State University has used a Raspberry Pi and some other hardware to modify a remote-controlled (RC) car to follow a track, detect, understand and respond to stop signs and traffic …

Story
Tagline
We make tiny computers from $5. We help people create things with digital tech. We're a non-profit.
Introduction

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

What’s more, the Raspberry Pi  has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infrared cameras. We want to help people of all ages all over the world to use digital technology to make things, create things and get things done.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a registered educational charity (registration number 1129409) based in the UK. Our goal is to advance the education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects.
