The Raspberry Pi Zero W

Today is Raspberry Pi’s fifth birthday: it’s five years since we launched the original Raspberry Pi, selling a hundred thousand units in the first day, and setting us on the road to a lifetime total (so far) of over twelve million units. To celebrate, we’re announcing a new product: meet Raspberry Pi Zero W, a new variant of Raspberry Pi Zero with wireless LAN and Bluetooth, priced at only $10… More here.

What a brilliant success story the Raspberry Pi is.

  1. My Zero W should arrive today 🙂

    • So what do you use the Pi for? Curious.

      • One runs my (not so) hidden .onion website on Tor.

        One ran as a PBX connected to a USB modem for a while (VoIP breaking into the cellular network).

        When I stopped using it for that, it just became my general purpose “test something on dedicated hardware” device.

        This one… not sure yet. Perhaps some kind of portable VPN router. Perhaps running emulator software and hooked up to our TV…

  2. Yep, I couldn’t do any of that- I need things explaining to me:)

  3. Have one… the use of the SD card is (surprisingly, for me), low level – I had presumed that the BIOS on the thing could read the SD card but no, you have to imprint it with a disk image.

    I’m thinking about it as a retrocade thing, and then maybe as a platform for game dev? It’s cool how you can both wire it up to a tv and then plug in 4 cheap usb game controllers…
