Hot Off the Digital Press: The Official Raspberry Pi Handbook 2021

Are you ready to kick off 2021 inspired to create? Maybe your New Year’s resolution this year will be to build more useful and totally cool projects using Raspberry Pi. If so, you’ll want to check out the new Official Raspberry Pi Handbook 2021 edition.

Brought to you from the makers at The MagPi, the official Raspberry Pi magazine, the new 2021 Official Handbook is a bookazine with 200+ pages of project inspiration, tutorials, reviews, and news so you can get the most out of your Raspberry Pi devices this year.

Ready to dive in and explore what you can do with Raspberry Pi in 2021?


What’s New

The 2021 Official Handbook contains feature articles on Raspberry Pi’s newest big releases. Some of these include the new High-Quality Camera and the Raspberry Pi 400 personal computer kit. You can also find out where to buy this latest tech – for example if you’re in North America, there are only six featured available suppliers if you want to  purchase the new Raspberry Pi 400, and one of those six is our team right here (yay, Vilros)!

The Handbook also contains reviews of several new kits and other accessory products you might want to try out. For example, there’s the M.A.R.S. Rover (a high-tech, 6-wheel robotics kit), or Enviro (a board + mini LCD screen for sensing the environment), or Unicorn HAT Mini (a super bright mini RGB LED matrix for a rainbow of pixels), or Maker pHAT (a board that can help you get started with the fundamentals of physical computing). There’s also a feature article on the “10 Best” recommended Raspberry Pi cases for 2021.


Inspiration Vilros

Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced user, there’s something to help everyone advance your skills and create something new in 2021.

For absolute beginners, the Handbook will show you how to set up your Pi and understand the fundamentals (which could also be a useful review for intermediate-level users). You’ll then be ready for the step-by-step tutorials that teach you how to code and build your first projects with Raspberry Pi.

For more experienced users, there are a wide range of projects developed by the community to inspire your creativity. Some of the projects that are showcased include Weatherman (an old-school Sony Walkman transformed into a weather prediction smart device), Instaclock (a unique digital clock powered by two Pi devices), NeoPixel LED Mirror (your own fantasy “magic mirror” that shows your reflection in LED lights), Retro Gaming NES Frame (which displays pixel art on an old-style game cartridge), Bee Monitor (a fun way to use Raspberry Pi to learn about bee life cycles), and Reachy (an open-source robot that’s wonderfully flexible and expressive).

If you’d like to take your tech skills to the next level, there’s also a guide of “50 Raspberry Pi Tips and Tools” as well as a tutorial called “Raspberry Pi Problems Solved” to help you learn how to diagnose and fix common issues.
