This issue we’re paying homage to some of our favourite projects built on the Raspberry Pi. We’re living in a golden age for experimentation, accessible making and digital discovery – and a large part of that is thanks to this teeny tiny computer. Just add imagination!
How one maker achieved perfection (yes, really!) by embracing failure
Our pick of the best walking robot kits
A deceptively simple hack for printing large objects (hint – you make the printer bigger)
