Welcome to Issue 21 of The MagPi magazine, our biggest issue yet with an incredible 48 pages!
Once again we are bursting at the seams with all that is new in the Raspberry Pi world.
To mark the Raspberry Pi’s second birthday, we have a MagPi exclusive four page interview with Eben Upton reviewing the past two years and what the future holds for this credit card sized beauty.
Also in this issue, Jacob, a young Raspberry Pi enthusiast, describes how he made his Raspberry Pi portable, we have more from Project Curacao plus ModMyPi give us a demo on motion sensing. We feature a great article on using the command line to troubleshoot network issues, take an in-depth look at turning your Raspberry Pi into an internet radio device, show you how to use a Raspberry Pi with a weather station and also feature how to remotely manage your home saltwater aquarium.
If that wasn’t enough, we conclude with a classic game by heading deep beneath the earth, to the realm of the Dwarven Heartland, in the hope of finding gold in the text adventure “Stronghold of the Dwarven Lords”.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
