Discover incredible projects
The Handbook 2023 is packed with our favourite projects of the last twelve months, like this incredible 3/4 Star Wars Arcade Cabinet. Built with care and attention by James Milroy it is a beautiful recreation of one of the greatest arcade machines of all time.
Build your own computer
Raspberry Pi sits at the heart of many computer builds. Some users go to extreme lengths, like this wonderful Callisto II build, complete with a classic keyboard and screen. You can build all kinds of computers and computer projects with Raspberry Pi.
Robots of all shapes and sizes
We love robotics here at The MagPi, and combining Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi Pico with servos and motors enables wonderful builds. We especially liked this Robot Arm Clock that nudges the clock around to show the current time.
Protect your local network with Pi-hole
Raspberry Pi can be put to a wide range of practical purposes, like Pi-hole. This project turns Raspberry Pi into a network-wide protection tool that blocks unwanted adverts and prevents unwanted tracking. It’s a great way to manage your privacy and get more from your local network and internet experience.
