+Docker allows you to package software, including code, system tools, libraries, and so on, making for an easy installation across multiple systems. With the latest release now supporting Raspbian Jessie, it’s hardly surprising that we’re seeing an increase of Docker/Pi integration.

Here’s the bearded wonder, Matt Richardson, with more...
If you’re not already familiar with Docker , it’s a method of packaging software to include not only your code, but also other components...

Remember when we shared the awesome Raspberry Pi Zero Portable project from +The Ben Heck Show?

Of course you do!

Well now is your chance to WIN IT!

Simply watch the video, do what Ben tells you to and you could be the proud owner of that nifty little gadget.

If you don’t win, NEVER FEAR… you could always make your own via the tutorial video over at The Ben Heck Show YouTube channel.

Raspberry Pi Weekly - Issue #167 - Vote - OUT NOW

It's been a great week for making, learning, touring, voting, tea drinking, chess playing, dog cuddling...
Oh hi, This week… wow, it’s been a good one. Tuesday was spent with the amazing participants of our Digital Making Day, building speakers, creating wearable tech, and getting our hands on Pi Cameras and Pi-Tops. This week also saw the release of issue 49 of The MagPi, and your chance to vote for the …

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the speed in which the Meccano Rubik's Shrine solves this Rubik's Cube.

The team use a Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi Camera, alongside a touchscreen, Arduino Pro Mini and all the Meccano you could wish for, to build the problem solving shrine to one of the most iconic toys in all the land.

(The closest thing we have to a Rubik's Cube solver at Pi Towers is Gordon, our Director of Software Engineering... but he doesn't look half as fancy as this one!)

+The MagPi Magazine Issue 49 is OUT NOW.

With so many new Raspberry Pi owners popping up daily, the MagPi team decided to include a brand new Beginners Guide within this month's issue, helping everyone get their hands on the right Pi fot them, and get making.

There's also a bushel of other amazing projects, features, reviews, tutorials... the list goes on.

You can grab the latest issue of The MagPi in stores today from WHSmith, Tesco, Sainsbury's, and Asda in the UK, and it will be in Micro Center stores and selected Barnes & Noble stores when it comes to America. It’s also available in print online from our store, and digitally on our Android and iOS app.
We’ve all seen the numbers. The Raspberry Pi is selling faster and faster every year, which means there are new people getting Raspberry Pis every day. With this in mind, we decided to make a brand new beginner’s guide in issue 49 of The MagPi, out now. The Raspberry Pi beginner’s guide takes you from …

Bought the last issue and I think I might be hooked. Loved the workshop on reporting on tweets with an RGB LED

Mehzeb Chowdhury has developed a system for generating a 3D model of a crime scene, allowing the jury to view via 3d headsets.

This new technique grants jury members the opportunity to witness a scene beyond sketches and photographs, using a Raspberry Pi, Arduino and 3D camera to capture detail before the threat of ‘scene degradation’ over time.
Forget biased accounts: robot created by a researcher in forensic science and criminal investigations will let jurors explore crime scenes as they actually appeared using virtual reality headsets.

After an unexpected visit from the local animal control department, advising Mark Gibbs that a neighbour had made a complaint regarding his dog barking, the curious maker decided to use a Raspberry Pi 2 and microphone to document the noise from his four-legged friend.

Meet the Barkometer!
My dog stands (sits) accused of barking too much so I'm using a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B to monitor his behavior.

The Call Me Ishmael Phone has had our attention for a while now. It's one of those projects that appears in bits and pieces across various social platforms and office conversation.

Call Ishmael and tell him about your favourite book and why it matters. Or lift the handset to receive these recommendations from strangers across the globe.

The premise of the phone steams from a conversation about the classic opening line to Moby Dick and it has us all thinking of our own favourite opening lines.

Mine?

"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again."

What's yours?
A retro phone becomes a Pi-powered book recommendation device

If you fancy learning how to build your own PiAngle USB hub for the Raspberry Pi Zero, check out this video from Sean Hodgins. You can also find more build details via his GitHub account.

Don’t worry if you’re not in the baking mood, Sean also has them for sale from his +Tindie store.
Please enable JavaScript to watch this video. Video: The Raspberry Pi Zero is great, but it’s lacking USB ports. Instructables user Sean Hodgins shares his project that adds four USB ports to the Pi Zero with a cleverly designed little board....

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.
