Playing With Papirus Zero

It’s a nice dainty little display. There are two displays of different sizes; 1.44 inch and 2.0 inch. It just so happens that the height of these screens is an almost perfect match for the Pi Zero. The wider of the two doesn’t quite fill a pHAT sized board, so they both fit nicely on the PCB.

Cheapest Raspberry Pi Games Console

Making amazing digital projects out of recycled parts is a real joy. So imagine how happy we are to see BotchBoy: the cheapest Raspberry Pi games console ever.

BotchBoy was built by Joe Foulkes who wanted to make the cheapest GameBoy console around. As a matter of fact: no expense has been spent on this project. The total build cost is less than £15 ($20). And we love it.

Write SD Card Images Using Etcher On Windows, Linux & Mac

In the Raspberry Pi Weekly #147 newsletter they mentioned a new tool for writing SD card images. This tool is called “Etcher”. Now I’m a great fan of Win32DiskImager but I liked the look of Etcher’s clean and simple interface. It also promised to make it clearer what device you were about to nuke which is a good thing if ever you’ve written a Pi image over one of your hard drives.

Portable Raspberry Pi Multi-Touch Tablet

In this project, we’ll show you how to build a portable Raspberry Pi 2, using a 7″ touchscreen display, an Adafruit PowerBoost 1000c and a 2500mAh battery. Our 3D printed enclosure fits all of the components making an all-in-one, compact Raspberry Pi tablet.
