In this episode I talk about the new Raspberry Pi Zero W single board computer released on 28th February 2017 to coincide with the 5th Birthday of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

  • 1GHz, single-core CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • Mini HDMI and USB On-The-Go ports
  • Micro USB power
  • HAT-compatible 40-pin header
  • Composite video and reset headers
  • CSI camera connector
  • 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

Very Cool

I am really excited to finally get my hands on one of these little ones. My kids and I have built several projects with my full sized ones and I want to teach a class next year using Raspi's.

Pi Zero W

Hi droops, you'll be lucky to be able to use the pi zeroW to teach a class as at the moment you can still only order them one at a time :-(
