Introducing Raspberry Pi Pico W

Raspberry Pi Pico W

Pico W brings a whole new element to Raspberry Pi’s RP2040 development platform. Our in-depth feature covers the specifications in detail, and shows you how to set up Raspberry Pi Pico W with the new firmware, and connect to your local network. Plus we chat to the hardware and software engineers that brought Pico W to life.

Hiwonder SpiderPi

HiWonder SpiderPi tested

This Raspberry Pi-powered hexapod is an agile, and interesting, robot powered by 18 servo motors. It’s much more physically imposing than many robots we’ve tested, which is sure to make it a hit in the classroom, and it features AI line-tracking and coloured ball detection, along with a Python API for more advanced coding.
