Microsoft Internet of Things Pack for Raspberry Pi 2: Internet of Things in a box! This is the best way to get started using Windows 10 and your Raspberry Pi as an IoT enabled device. A collaboration between Microsoft’s IoT division and Adafruit, this pack’s the best way to get started using both Windows 10 on your Pi and to start doing some popular projects with the internet of things. Check out windowsondevices.com for more information on how to set up Windows 10 IoT Core on your Raspberry Pi and download project samples!

Spy Camera for Raspberry Pi: Is your house haunted? Or, rather, are you convinced that your house is haunted but have never been able to prove it since you’ve never had a camera that integrated with your raspberry pi but was still small enough that the ghosts wouldn’t notice it? Luckily, the Spy Camera for Raspberry Pi is smaller than a thumbnail with a high enough resolution to see people, or ghosts, or whatever it is you’re looking for. It’s about the size of a cell phone camera – the module being just 8.5mm x 11.3mm – and has a stick-on back so it’s easy to mount in a doorbell or behind a teddy bear’s eye (might as well be creative!)

PiTFT – Assembled 320×240 2.8″ TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi:Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 2.8″ display with 320×240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top! (read more)
