Here are just some of the fun projects inside this festive issue:
- Magazine tree: turn the special cover into a Christmas tree, using LED lights to create a shiny, blinky display
- DIY decorations: bling out your tree with NeoPixels and code
- Santa tracker: follow Santa Claus around the world with a Raspberry Pi
- Christmas crackers: the best low-cost presents for makers and hackers
- Yuletide game: build Sliders, a fab block-sliding game with a festive feel.
Inside the MagPi Christmas special
If you’re a bit Grinchy when it comes to Christmas, there’s plenty of non-festive fun to be found too:
- Learn to use VNC Viewer
- Find out how to build a sunrise alarm clock
- Read our in-depth guide to Amiga emulation
- Discover the joys of parallel computing
There’s also a huge amount of community news this month. The MagPi has an exclusive feature on Pioneers, our new programme for 12- to 15-year-olds, and news about Astro Pi winning the Arthur Clarke Award.
After that, we see some of the most stylish projects ever. Inside is the beautiful Sisyphus table; that’s a moving work of art, a facial recognition door lock, and a working loom controlled by a Raspberry Pi.
If that wasn’t enough, we also have a big feature on adding sensors to your robots. These can be used to built a battle-bot ready for the upcoming Pi Wars challenge.
The MagPi team wishes you all a merry Christmas! You can grab The MagPi 52 in stores today: it’s in WHSmith, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and Asda in the UK, and it will be in Micro Center and selected Barnes & Noble stores when it comes to the US. You can also buy the print edition online from our store, and it’s available digitally on our Android and iOS app.

Any Pi zero anniversary special?
Afraid not, no. (That’d be a bit of a weird thing to commemorate – there are so many things we’ve done now at such different points in the year that if we celebrated all of them we’d have a very busy schedule!)
Thank You for Christmas Gift good luck to Raspberry Pi team
Hi, my name is Jackson, I am a new user of the raspberry pi and I had a few questions about the GPIO pins. My first question is if there is any possible way to have a 3.5 Inch screen and a button circuit connected to the GPIO at the same time. I am building a raspberry pi-boy and I need these two to connect is there a splitter anything I can do to attach both at the same time? thanks for your time and help. I am appreciative to all the help of can get.
rather than the front page blog, the best place to ask these kind of questions is on our forums here :
