10 Ins'Pi'ring Raspberry Pi Zero Projects
There’s little doubt that the Raspberry Pi has transformed classrooms, bedrooms and hobbyist workbenches throughout the world, and has fast become an instantly recognisable British product we should all be proud of.

Whilst it’s now not the newest or most powerful model of Raspberry Pi available, the B+ is one of the most widely used. Having replaced the original Model B in July 2014, this single board micro computer is behind some truly ins’Pi’ring projects. Sorry, we couldn’t resist.

The B+ has more power than the Model A or A+; swaps an SD card slot for a more compact micro SD; fits in an additional 2 USB ports over the original Model B; has better audio and video outputs; increases the GPIO header from 26 to 40 pins; and despite all these new features, still uses up to 1W less power than earlier models.

Here at LifeHacker we’ve unearthed a variety of exciting pi-projects, but if you’re looking for a truly exciting project to take on with your new Pi B+, then keep reading!

10 Ins'Pi'ring Raspberry Pi Zero Projects

Just when you thought computing couldn’t get much smaller, along comes a miniaturised version of the – already diminutive – Raspberry Pi: The Zero. At just half the size of the Raspberry Pi A+, this tiny new model was launched on the front cover of a magazine – proof of Moore’s Law (if it were needed).

Crammed into a package measuring 65mm x 50mm x 5mm, there’s a surprisingly capable 1GHz processor, 512mb of RAM, a micro-SD slot, micro HDMI video output and two micro-USB sockets (one for data and one for power)

It might not have quite the connectivity of its larger brothers, but the Raspberry Pi Zero is still the perfect starting point for a wide variety of projects, from simple media streamers to more exciting inventions.

We’ve covered a variety of exciting pi-powered projects already here at Lifehacker, but if you’re on the hunt for a truly exciting project, then try one of these for size.
