String pong

If you’re not a daily reader of this website, you might have missed our big news last week: The MagPi, our official magazine, is no longer a download-only magazine; you can now buy or subscribe to a print copy. Lots of you have been sending us photos of your own MagPis. Here’s a small selection; we’ll be publishing some of them in the magazine itself, so keep them coming – you can send them to magpi@raspberrypi.org, or tweet them to .

One limitation of the printed magazine is, of course, that we can’t show you videos of the projects inside. Fortunately, we also have this blog. Mike Cook, who is behind Mike’s Pi Bakery, the magazine’s brilliant hardware projects series (not-so-secretly, my favourite bit of the MagPi, and the page I always turn to first), sent me this video of this month’s Pi Bakery build: meet String Pong. Love it. You’ll find a complete tutorial in this month’s magazine.

If you want to try before you buy (and please do buy – every penny The MagPi makes goes straight back into the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s charitable work), a free download of the magazine is always available. You’ll find copies in WHSmith and many other British newsagents; in a couple of weeks, US readers will find The MagPi on the shelves in Microcenter and Barnes & Noble; and readers all over the world can subscribe to receive the magazine on their own doorsteps.

Nice. did a good job of it. Is it Vetinari’d?

No, but that’s a REALLY GOOD IDEA for someone with a clock, a Pi and some…time on their hands.

Your distribution is not too good. Im at Dorset now and could not buy MagPi any where around Bournemouth. Tommorow will try to find it somewhere in London near Victoria Coach Station. Clerks at WHSmith after quick check at computer told me that they don’t order this Magazine and wilk not do it for me.

Thanks for getting in touch.

The magazine is actually produced in Bournemouth and is available in WHSmiths in both Bournemouth town centre and on Boscombe High Street.

Perhaps it was merely sold out? It might be worth checking out Swag.RaspberryPi.org – I know there are still a few issues available for home delivery to anywhere in the world.

Thanks for reading The MagPi!

I was today at Bournemouth Square and could not get it, also earlier this week at Winton and Castle Point. I will not make to Boscombe…. Anyway it looks like paper version must be very popular here.

Maybe next year i will get it into my hands.
