Raspberry Pi turns 5

The Raspberry Pi project turned 5 at the end of February and to celebrate the occasion, they've announced the Raspberry Pi Zero W. The Zero model has been out for a bit now, along with its really low $5 price tag and the Zero W will be a little bit of an upgrade, the biggest feature being built-in wireless functionality. The price tag on the Zero W model will be $10 officially which is pretty incredible for a device that small with those features. If you haven't already had the chance to try out a Raspberry Pi device, I'm not sure what you are waiting for as they are a very inexpensive gadget that a simple Google search will show you thousands of projects you can do with them. Official release information of the Raspberry Pi Zero W can be found here.

Today is Raspberry Pi’s fifth birthday: it’s five years since we launched the original Raspberry Pi, selling a hundred thousand units in the first day, and setting us on the road to a lifetime total (so far) of over twelve million units. To celebrate, we’re announcing a new product: meet Raspberry Pi Zero W, a new variant of Raspberry Pi Zero with wireless LAN and Bluetooth, priced at only $10.
