Official Raspberry Pi 7″ Touchscreen Display: Pi Pan

Official Raspberry Pi 7″ Touchscreen Display: Pi Pan
Last year we checked out the PiTouch, a third-party 10″ touchscreen display for the Raspberry Pi. But that takes up the Pi’s HDMI port and more importantly isn’t for sale as of this writing. Thankfully the Rasberry Pi Foundation has released its own 7″ touchscreen display for the Pi. The display has a meager 800×480 resolution but is capable of detecting up to 10 points of touch.

DIY Moon One RC Rover: Wall-E’s Sleazy Grandpa
A couple of months ago, we checked out Sergey Grishchenko’s DIY scale model of the Curiosity rover. Michael Larkin’s Moon One is a very similar remote-controlled rover, but he optimized it for agility, maneuverability and mischief. Like Sergey, Michael opted to 3D print most of his toy’s non-electronic parts, with the exception of several aluminum parts and insulin syringes that he used as shock absorbers.

Death Star Kitchen Timer: The Ultimate Weapon in the Utility Drawer
Force Friday is behind us, but the cool Star Wars merch keeps on coming anyhow.
