CBC news recently interviewed some of our members about all the cool things you can do with a Raspberry Pi from setting up a computer to building your own photo booth, pinball machine, and loads more. And now, with the new Pi Zero, you can set up your own computer for around $5.  Don’t forget to come on down to one of our FREE open nights  to learn about RPis and all the other things we do at VHS.
