Raspberry Pi turned 5 years old on February 28th, and to mark the occasion, the foundation announced a new member of the family, the Raspberry Pi Zero W, and a case to go with it.
Raspberry Pi Zero W adds wireless LAN and Bluetooth capabilities to tiny computer’s growing list of capabilities. Priced at just US $10, the device is affordable for anyone who wants to take the Pi for a test drive.

The Raspberry Pi camera module is a great accessory for the Pi—it’s great quality, and can capture still photos and record video in full HD (1080p). The original 5-megapixel camera module was released in 2013, and a new 8-megapixel version was released in April this year. Both versions are compatible with all Raspberry Pi models. There are also two variations—a regular visible light camera, and an infra-red camera—both available for US$ 25.

Raspberry Pi, the family of tiny, inexpensive computers popular for educational and embedded computing, could soon become more Ubuntu-friendly. That’s thanks to new tools that make it easier to port certain versions of Canonical’s operating systems to Raspberry Pi devices.
