Through working with the UK Space Agency on the Astro Pi project we’ve learnt about something called Outernet. Internet, Outernet – see what they did there? Outernet is a small company started by Syed Karim that broadcasts the most useful stuff from the internet via satellites in geostationary orbit…
The crew at Pi Supply are at it again. They’ve dreamed up yet another snap-on accessory that makes taking Raspberry Pi-based projects from a concept to a fully-functional device even faster and easier [...]
The Raspberry Pi doesn’t have a power switch, which means you have to remember to actually properly shut it down every time you want to turn it off. If you don’t feel like running those extra commands, Instructables user AndrewH7 shows you how to easily add a shutdown switch.

The list of cool stuff you can do with a Raspberry Pi is pretty much endless (no seriously — Wi-Fi controlled pottery kiln!), but most of the existing designs for portable Pi-ing require a little electronics know-how (and a dash of soldering).
