NEWS – The Raspberry Pi Foundation has been building mini computers for years now. I have one on my local network that hosts PiHole. Recently they’ve decided to dip their toes into some new water: microcontrollers. They just released the Raspberry Pi Pico, a small microcontroller board that only costs $4! If you’re ever wanted to try some DIY projects, this is the perfect time to jump in. If you’re not quite sure where to start or even what you could do with this microcontroller, Raspberry Pi has provided an online getting started guide and a paper book you can buy for $14. There’s even a free magazine with ideas. It’s time to get creative!
