Raspberry Pi 4 Linux computer gets twice the RAM and USB-C power fix

The Raspberry Pi line has provided great little Linux computers to nerds — its low price and small size makes it ideal for tinkering and doing projects. But also, the device has proven to be a solid media device, wonderful for watching videos and emulating classic video games. In other words, it has been a very versatile computer, serving as many things to many people. With the release of the Raspberry Pi 4, however, it finally became powerful enough to serve as a true desktop computer. By installing a Linux distribution, some people can use it for day-to-day computer use,… [Continue Reading]

Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ launches! 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-band wireless LAN, and just $25

The Raspberry Pi was very much inspired by the BBC Micro — a popular British computer of the 1980s. The BBC Micro was available in Model A and B forms, and shortly after the Raspberry Pi Foundation introduced the original Pi 1 Model B+ in 2014, it followed it up with a cut-down A+ model. It didn’t offer an A+ version for the Pi 2 or 3 unfortunately, but today, it finally rights that wrong and brings back the popular bare-bones system’s smaller brother.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is a compact yet powerful Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi Foundation just announced a brand new model. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is basically a flagship Raspberry Pi on a smaller printed circuit board, with a few compromises. It costs $25, or $10 less than the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.
The lineup is getting slightly confusing, but bear with me for a second. If you want the best Raspberry Pi, you should get the 3 Model B+. It comes with a 1.4GHz ARMv8 quad-core processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet (max 300 Mbps), USB 2.0 and HDMI.
The new Pi 3 Model A+ is supposed to be a smaller model but with most of the advantages of the Model B+. It has similar specifications, except that you get 512MB of RAM instead of 1GB, there’s only one USB 2.0 port and the Ethernet port is gone.
But that’s about it. If you don’t need a ton of RAM or Ethernet,

Raspberry Pi Zero WH has pre-soldered header

In a surprising announcement, a new Raspberry Pi model appears! With little fanfare, the “Raspberry Pi Zero WH,” as it is called, becomes an official variant of the diminutive Zero W. While it is technically not entirely new, it is still an exciting new model nonetheless. You see, the “H” seems to indicate “header” as this is a Raspberry Pi Zero W with a GPIO header soldered on. If you have a need for a Zero W with these pins, but don’t have soldering skills (or don’t have the time to do it yourself), this could be the ideal Pi for… [Continue Reading]

Scratch 2.0 now available for Raspberry Pi

Scratch lets you write code to control and respond to components connected to the GPIO (General Purpose Input and Output) pins on a Raspberry Pi, and there’s a new version of it available from today. Interacting with GPIO pins in Scratch 2.0 is easier than before, with custom blocks for setting the pin output (and getting the current pin state) replacing the old text-based broadcast instructions. But that’s not all that’s new. SEE ALSO: Raspberry Pi to merge with CoderDojo Scratch 2.0 offers some additional features, including the ability to create custom blocks and clones of sprites. The new version… [Continue Reading]

Google releases DIY open source Raspberry Pi ‘Voice Kit’ hardware — here’s how to get it

Google has long been focused on artificial intelligence. Its Google Now and voice assistance projects have used AI to better the lives of users. The Google Home voice-based hardware unit brings its assistant to life, making traditional inputs and displays unnecessary. With just the power of your voice, you can interact with the device — nothing else is needed. The search giant has decided to take artificial intelligence to the maker community with a new initiative called AIY. This initiative (found here) will introduce open source AI projects to the public that makers can leverage in a simple way. Today, Google announces… [Continue Reading]

What I’ve Learned From Tinkering With the Raspberry Pi for Five Years

Today is Pi Day and what better way to celebrate everyone’s favorite mathematical constant than by taking a look back at everyone’s favorite $35 hobbyist computer, the Raspberry Pi. Since the launch of the Raspberry Pi, I’ve written an absurd number of guides, blogs, and an already outdated book on the variety of…Read more…
