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!
- 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.

- Mass SD card Image Writer
We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

This is an awesome project that takes about 6 hours to complete. Hours upon hours of endless fun thereafter! Ideally, some prior soldering experience is advantageous but if you take your time and practice before you start it's beginner friendly! The battery will give just over 3 hours on a single charge and can be recharged via the handy micro USB port. System updates, ROM transfers etc all possible with the Pi Zero W' built in...
