    The Raspberry Pi Zero is half the size of a Model A+, with twice the utility. A tiny Raspberry Pi that’s affordable enough for any project!

    Just because the Raspberry Pi Zero resembles a tiny circuit board, doesn’t means it’s lacking in grunt. Okay, so compared to your average desktop PC, laptop, or even mid-range smartphone it’s not particularly powerful. But it holds its own against the rest of the Raspberry Pi range, and these are machines that are significantly larger and more expensive.

    In fact, the Zero runs on the exact same single-core Broadcom BCM2835 CPU as the first Raspberry Pi. However, that chip has been clocked higher to 1GHz, so it’s actually 40 percent faster than the original.

    What can you do with Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3?

    While the Raspberry Pi Zero can be set up to run like a standard (albeit bare bones) desktop computer, that isn’t really the point. Rather, it’s intended to be used as an educational tool for those who wish to learn to program. It’s also intended to be modified and customised for specific tasks.

    For example, with the addition of an inexpensive camera module and a GPS module, the Raspberry Pi Zero could be attached to balloon and set off to track its journey. A more down-to-earth application would be to set the Pi Zero up as a living room media server, or to set up the Pi to play old emulated video games.

    The potential applications really are staggering, and far more reliant on your imagination, ingenuity, and hard work than the contents of your wallet. 

    When you factor in the 512MB of RAM that the Zero has, it actually turns out to be around three times faster than the original Raspberry Pi overall.
