Someone's Made Overwatch… for VR Game, Job Simulator

Someone's Made Overwatch… for VR Game, Job Simulator

Ever wondered what would happen if Overwatch was fused with Job Simulator? Following a weekend hack project, Job Simulator developer Owlchemy Labs has created a makeshift world of Overwatch within the 9-5 simulator. The mod, which sadly will not be released for public consumption, features Reaper’s gun – represented by two staplers – Mei’s icewall (a spray can), and Widowmaker’s sniper rifle (bottle of grape juice with a mug taped on) all being used to fend off an approaching Pharah, Reinhardt and mini-McCree. If you’re a fan of Overwatch, the video below is a must-watch. Weekend #VR hack experiment: Job Simulator meets Overwatch. #gamedev #madewithunity pic.twitter.com/4Bmp0LBgNw Continue reading…

Meet the wireless-enabled Raspberry Pi Zero W in The MagPi 55

Meet the wireless-enabled Raspberry Pi Zero W in The MagPi 55

We’re ecstatic to finally reveal that there is a brand new Raspberry Pi Zero, the wireless-enabled Raspberry Pi Zero W, and it’s in our latest issue out today.

We’ve got not one but two big articles about the Raspberry Pi Zero W in issue 55 of The MagPi. We have a Big Build this issue teaching you how to make a modified PiGRRL handheld retro console, along with a complete breakdown of everything that’s cool and new with the Raspberry Pi Zero W. We’ve got a little preview of it, along with a full list of specs, <a href=”/magpi/pi-zero-w/”>on our launch article</a>. As usual we have loads of other excellent articles in the magazine, from tutorials on how to create an Amazon Alexa-powered robot to reviews of the brand new version of Kodi. Get your copy You can grab a copy of The MagPi 55 in stores now from WHSmith, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and Asda. Alternatively you can grab an issue online or get it digitally via our app on Android and iOS. There’s even a free PDF of it as well. We also have a new subscription offer to celebrate the new Raspberry Pi Zero W: grab a twelve-month subscription and you’ll get a Raspberry Pi Zero W absolutely free, along with a free case for it and a bundle of adapter cables. Get yours online right now! Also here’s a full zip of the code from the issue if you want it. We hope you enjoy the issue! The post Meet the wireless-enabled Raspberry Pi Zero W in The MagPi 55 appeared first on The MagPi Magazine.

Introducing Raspberry Pi Zero W

Introducing Raspberry Pi Zero W

The Raspberry Pi Zero has proven to be one of the most popular and sought-after versions of the Raspberry Pi since it came out in November 2015. However, many people thought it lacked one very important feature: inbuilt wireless internet. As of today, the Pi Zero lacks it no more: let us introduce you to Raspberry Pi Zero W.

The new Raspberry Pi Zero W will cost $10 and is launching in the UK, today, at £9.60 (including VAT). Specifications Dimensions: 65mm × 30mm × 5mm SoC: Broadcom BCM2835 CPU: ARM11 running at 1GHz RAM: 512MB Wireless: 2.4GHz 802.11n wireless LAN Bluetooth: Bluetooth Classic 4.1 and Bluetooth LE Power: 5V, supplied via micro USB connector Video & Audio: 1080P HD video & stereo audio via mini-HDMI connector Storage: MicroSD card Output: Micro USB GPIO: 40-pin GPIO, unpopulated Pins: Run mode, unpopulated; RCA composite, unpopulated Camera Serial Interface (CSI) You’ll only notice minor differences in the layout of the board It’s almost identical to the previous Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 (the one that added the camera connector) – importantly, all the chips and components are still only on the top side of the board. Wireless antenna While the radio chip on the Raspberry Pi Zero W is the same as the one on the Raspberry Pi 3, the antenna is completely different. Instead of a little white chip that contains it, the antenna on the Pi Zero W is printed into the board. The antenna is the discoloured triangle at the edge of the board We spoke to Roger Thornton, principal hardware engineer, about the new antenna: “The Raspberry Pi 3 antenna is a surface-mount component,” explains Roger, “whereas the Zero W antenna is a resonant cavity which is formed by etching away copper on each layer of the PCB structure.” The technology is licensed from a Swedish company called Proant (you can see the credit on the reverse of the Zero W board). “They’re very clever boffins,” says Roger. “It’s a really neat design.” The triangle recession in the board is known as the ground plane. This free space is used to interact with the radio waves. They resonate in this cavity at just the right frequency. The two components at the small side, right up by the board, are a couple of capacitors which capture the radio signal. Get a Raspberry Pi Zero W It all sounds…
