By Russell Barnes. Posted

The Pi Zero gets another upgrade and we show you how to make use of its wireless powers with a retro gaming handheld build

We’re ecstatic to finally reveal that there is a brand new Raspberry Pi Zero, the wireless-enabled Raspberry Pi Zero W, and it’s in our latest issue out today.

We’ve got not one but two big articles about the Raspberry Pi Zero W in issue 55 of The MagPi. We have a Big Build this issue teaching you how to make a modified PiGRRL handheld retro console, along with a complete breakdown of everything that’s cool and new with the Raspberry Pi Zero W. We've got a little preview of it, along with a full list of specs, <a href="/magpi/pi-zero-w/">on our launch article</a>.

As usual we have loads of other excellent articles in the magazine, from tutorials on how to create an Amazon Alexa-powered robot to reviews of the brand new version of Kodi.
