The MagPi Issue 26 is out now! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Issue 26 26 The MagPi

The MagPi Issue 26 is out now! Check it out here.

Welcome to Issue 26 of The MagPi magazine.

This month’s MagPi contains another great selection of hardware, software and programming articles. Michael Giles explains how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a magic wand with a fun hardware project that demonstrates the persistence of vision effect, while John Mahorney from Suncoast Science Center in Florida shows how a Raspberry Pi is used to display dynamic art. Big news this month is the launch of the Model B+ and MagPi writer Aaron Shaw has all the details for you on page 22.

Robotics is always a popular theme and Harry Gee continues on from last month’s article and shows how to add speech, voice control and facial recognition to your robot. Additionally, Rishi Deshpande describes how to use the SmartDrive controller board to easily control high current motors.

Another popular topic is beer and Sebastian Duell explains his hardware and software “Mashberry” project which he uses to optimise the mashing process. Karl-Ludwig Butte continues his series on using a Raspberry Pi and BitScope for electronic measurement plus we have an interesting article by Walberto Abad on how to set up your own VoIP telephone system.

Last, but definitely not least, Jon Silvera continues his series on learning how to program with FUZE BASIC. This is an exciting article with lots to discover. I certainly don’t remember ever being able to control sprites this easily with BASIC!

We try to make sure each issue of The MagPi contains something of interest for everyone, regardless of age and skill level. Have we got the balance right? Let us know by sending an email to editor@themagpi.com or comment on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MagPiMagazine.

Finally, a big thank you to all the volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to produce The MagPi for your enjoyment and education.

Let’s get started…

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
