This great bundle form Pimoroni provides everything you need to get up and running with the new Pi Zero W!

It's got an SD card with operating system pre-loaded, a smart and colorful Pibow Zero W case, and even one of Pimoroni's lovely Blinkt! multicolor LED strips to take your first steps with coding in Python!

Kit includes

  • Pi Zero W (header requires soldering, or try a no-solder hammer header)
  • Pibow case
  • 8GB micro-SD card with operating system pre-loaded
  • Blinkt! multicolor LED strip
  • Male 2x20 pin header
  • 50cm USB A to micro-B cable
  • USB A (female) to micro B (male) adaptor
  • mini to full-size HDMI adaptor
  • Sticker sheet (personalize your Pibow!)
  • Comes in a reusable kit box

The built-in wireless LAN and Bluetooth on the Pi Zero W frees up the micro-USB port, and makes for a really tiny package when using the Zero W in embedded, headless Internet of Things projects. Or why not use a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, and hide your Pi behind your monitor or TV?

Pimoroni's beautiful Pibow case will keep your Pi Zero W protected from bumps and bruises. It has a clear top layer, and frosted red, purple, and blue layers. The clever design leaves the GPIO pins free, letting you attach Adafruit's add-on boards like the Blinkt! while your Pi is still safely ensconced in its case. You can use the included sticker sheet to personalize your Pibow!

The included 8GB micro-SD card comes pre-loaded with the Raspbian operating system. Just remove it from the larger SD card adapter, pop it into the slot on your Pi Zero W before putting it into the Pibow case, and you'll be up-and-running in next to no time

The Blinkt! multicolor LED strip is the perfect way to take your first steps with coding in Python. Pimoroni's Getting Started with Blinkt! guide will teach you the basics, and there's a bunch of code examples in the Blinkt! GitHub code repository to give you an idea of what's possible.

Features

  • Blinkt! with eight APA102 RGB LEDs
  • Pi Zero W with single core CPU and built-in wireless LAN and Bluetooth
  • Pibow Zero W acrylic case
  • 8GB micro-SD card with NOOBS pre-loaded
  • USB and HDMI adapter kit
  • 50cm USB A to micro-B cable (power your Pi from an existing charger or computer)
  • Python library
  • Female and male headers require soldering

Technical Details

Software:

  • Pimoroni's Python library will give you full control over your Blinkt! There's even a nifty one-line installer to get everything set up super-quick. There are details on how to get started in Pimoroni's tutorial.
