Revolutionizing pretty much every Raspberry Pi project so far, the Pi Zero’s compact form factor but lack of full-size USB and Ethernet ports make it attractive and challenging in equal measure. But despite it only being available since December 2015 (and even then, in short supply), the Pi Zero has had a huge impact.
If you managed to get one, and you’re looking for projects or inspiration for your $5 personal computer, here are ten great Raspberry Pi Zero projects to get you started.
This is the Droid You’re Looking For
While you can’t quite squeeze the PiSaber into it, this R2-D2-inspired project is another favorite with Star Wars fans.
Teaming up the Pi Zero with a HAT and a toy like this is a great way to get started with robotics, and with the Explorer pHAT sensors, you should be able to program the droid to move autonomously and avoid objects.
