Share your best Raspberry Pi or Arduino projects

We were thrilled with your creative contributions last time we asked – a year on, we want to see what you’ve been making in 2016

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

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

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

Arduino’s are better at hardware projects – I have one running an advent calendar onmy desk- you get more outputs and inputs and they just switch on and work as youdon’t have to wait for them to boot up – but the Raspberry Pi is better for makingprojects that need connectivity or the use of a webcam. You can also connect anarduino 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 withopen source electronics platform Arduino – or anything else you’d like to tell usabout.

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