The Guardian wants to see your best projects!

More than 10m Raspberry Pi units have sold since 2012 – and many of them, we know, have landed in the hands of our ever-inventive readers.

When the Raspberry Pi Zero launched in 2015 we asked you to share the projects you’d been working on, but the past year has seen further development of the technology and exploration of its capacity – so, we’re asking again.

After we published the results – including audiovisual and entertainment projects, educational tools and even festive ideas – many of you wanted to highlight similar or alternative home project-enabling technology:

Arduino’s are better at hardware projects – I have one running an advent calendar on my desk- you get more outputs and inputs and they just switch on and work as you don’t have to wait for them to boot up – but the Raspberry Pi is better for making projects that need connectivity or the use of a webcam. You can also connect an arduino to a Pi and use the best of both.

So we’re happy to say we’re also looking for anything you’ve been making with open source electronics platform Arduino – or anything else you’d like to tell us about.

Whether you have pieced a Pi or Arduino-based system together from scratch as a fun joint project with the kids, or breathed life into some older tech you had lying around, contribute your stories and photographs and we’ll gather together some of your success stories – or even tales of woe.

Share your project here!
