Issue #175 - Sisyphus
This week has seen the release of photographs from our #PiCommunity event at St James’s Palace with HRH The Duke of York. Follow the link and use the PIN 1106 for downloads.
Meanwhile on our blog, Courtney Lentz covers the beautiful Sisyphus kinetic table, Lorna offers a low-down on our time at Maker Faire New York, Matt discusses the impact of ten million Raspberry Pi sales, Carrie Anne introduces the second MagPi Educator’s Edition, and yours truly gets her teeth into some of our favourite RetroPie builds.
There’s also a host of builds to try, and a selection of great competitions and articles from the week.
Have an awesome weekend and we’ll see you all next Friday.
(And if all that wasn’t enough, Ben’s Nan turns 100 this week! Woohoo!)
