I have received my brand new Raspberry PI Zero. I really like the small size of the PI Zero, but one feature is missing for a lot of projects: Network capabilities!! So, I have carefully removed the case from the Edimax WiFi USB Adapter, taped it with Capton tape and bodge wired it to the PI’s USB port. It was quite easy because there are test points for USB power and USB data pins. Because the USB data lines are differential lines, you have to keep the two wires equal in length. I have used a another RasPI to setup the WiFi credentials.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
