Friday Fun: Lockdown Projects

Around the world people are staying safe in their homes. Children are being educated, makers are creating equipment to help the health services, and adults are binging Netflix.

As many of you know, I write content for Linux Format magazine. I am now in my 10th year writing for the magazine, and my 5th year collaborating on the Pi User section of the magazine.

Your help makes this blog possible!
Sorry to interrupt! It would be great if you could buy me a cup of coffee / make a donation via Ko-Fi. It helps me to pay for hosting this blog, and to buy stuff to hack from Poundshops / Dollar Stores / Aliexpress which are used in free projects on this blog. Thanks!

About two years ago I asked my editor if I could make a selection of my projects free to download from this blog. He agreed that I can share content from magazines released 12 months previously. And so I have been sharing projects at intervals through the years. Including summer 2019 where I shared another load of free projects!

So can we have some more projects?

Of course!

Here are the rules!

Show me the freebies!!!
