This means hobbyists will be able to permanently build Pi Zeros into even smaller or more portable devices. The one drawback is that the smaller connectors on the Zero may require adaptors before the device is connected to other peripherals, but these aren’t expensive, and the Raspberry Pi organization is even pointing out deals that sell adaptor packs for around $5.

The price of the Zero is the headline grabber, of course, since it’s a full working programmable computer on sale for only a little more than a venti latte at your favorite coffee outlet. Even more impressive is the fact that in the UK the official Raspberry Pi magazine The MagPi is on sale at its usual cover price with a free Zero stuck to its cover.

Tapping into the whole “teach kids to code” push, the Pi has already earned praise from big names like Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, and builds on a long tradition of accessible home computing in Britain that some credit for the billion-pound size of the UK’s videogame industry. Lest you doubt its capabilities, the Pi has even had a special version of Minecraft written for it.
