Hackaday and Adafruit have joined forces to present the Raspberry Pi Zero Contest. A great contest is nothing without entries though. This is where the Hackaday.io community is proving once again that they’re the best in the world. The...Show More Summary
Collectively, the Hackaday readers sigh, “Not another Pi Zero hub!!!”. But [Sean Hodgins’] hub is different. It has a new angle, literally. Besides, it’s an entry in the Hackaday and Adafruit Pi Zero Contest. [Sean Hodgins’] acute approach is orthogonal to most of the other hubs we’ve seen. Show More Summary
A brief demonstration of the shockingly good audio capabilities of a $5 Raspberry Pi Zero computer, as the bargain priced computer replicates the sounds and music of the iconic Doctor Who theme music. Remember when you needed a $1000 synthesizer to do this?
There’s no denying that the Raspberry Pi is a great little dev board. For $5 more, though, Hardkernel’s new ODROID board provides a lot more computational muscle. The ODROID-C2 is their newest offering. […]
The Raspberry Pi Zero is a fantastically affordable single-board computer, but its (roughly) $20 price point means that it doesn’t pack quite as many connectivity options as some of its more powerful siblings, which come with Ethernet ports. More »

Youtube User panthallion has installed Jasper on his HR-OS1 (with Raspberry Pi), and it’s pretty cool. The age of robotic personal assistance is upon us. Jasper is an open source platform for developing voice-controlled applications, similar to Siri, OK Google, Cortana, and so on. In this case, Jasper is being used in conjunction with an […]
Many people have famously poor luck when trying to shout, however publicly, at Comcast customer service. So one user is taking what Geek.com describes as a "passive aggressive" approach by programming his Raspberry Pi to automatically tweet every time his Internet service falls below an unacceptable speed (it's happened...
We all know you can pop over to a site like Speedtest to check your internet speeds, but most of us only bother when there’s a perceivable problem. If you want to create an actual database of your speeds throughout the day, Make shows off a logging system that uses a Raspberry Pi and If This Then That. Read more...
The Raspberry Pi Zero is all about being small, so it makes sense that if you wanted to add Wi-Fi capabilities, you’d shrink it down as much as possible. Over on Node, they show you how to do just that. Read more...
Yelling at a big company like Comcast when things aren't working isn't going to do you much good, so maybe passive aggression is the answer.
We kinda feel bad posting all these awesome hacks you can do with a Raspberry Pi Zero when we know most of our audience here probably doesn’t have one due to the backlog of orders… but regardless — here’s another one you can try — if you have one anyway. Show More Summary
Raspberry Pi does hourly speed tests, tweets if speed is lower than advertised.
