So the spoiler in yesterday’s photo was another quadcopter flight controller to the left of the keyboards, pending the release of a fantastic new range of quadcopter frames which is being launched next month. More on that once I’ve got my grubby mitts on one.
But that A+ controller has now been flushed down the pan with the launch of the Raspberry Pi Zero, smaller than an A+, double the memory and just as powerful in every other way. I really have know idea how they halved the size of the PCB and yet kept all of the function. And it’s £4 (yes, that’s not a typo, four quid for a computer that runs Linux happily!), and free if you buy this month’s copy of the MagPi magazine.
So I now need to redo the design for the beret board, to shrink it down to the Pi Zero size!
If you’re in the neighbourhood, pop down to the Cotswold Raspberry Jam in Cheltenham on Saturday and see the Pi Zero for yourself!
