The Best Raspberry Pi projects for beginners!


Raspberry Pi is a popular programming tool that can be used for a variety of projects. However, you don’t have to be a seasoned programmer to get the most out of it.

From gaming to the internet of things (IoT), you might create some amazing things right from your own house.

The Raspberry Pi, now the best-selling computer in the UK, was born at the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Which is a charity dedicated to teaching computer science in schools.

The majority of the projects are connected to This gives step-by-step instructions on how to perform the hacks from start to finish. You can get Raspberry Pi for roughly £60 from a big store like RS.

Remote-Controlled Car

Raspberry Pi projects

IoT projects are extremely popular among Raspberry Pi users due to the device’s well-deserved reputation for wireless internet connectivity.

Using a Raspberry Pi to make a remote-controlled automobile. Like the speaker project, necessitates the usage of the computer’s Bluetooth capabilities. Aside from a Raspberry Pi 3, you’ll also need a remote — a smartphone would suffice – and a toy vehicle.

This project’s instructions may be found on circuitdigest.

Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Raspberry Pi projects

The newest Raspberry Pi computers include built-in Bluetooth capabilities, allowing the palm-sized computer to effortlessly transform a typical 3.5mm headphone jack speaker into a portable, Wireless Bluetooth speaker.

This project requires an SD card, a battery-powered loudspeaker, and a battery pack for your Pi. The latter two are required if you want the new speaker to be portable. Because older versions of the computer lack the essential capabilities. So, if you own a Raspberry Pi 2, you will also have to connect an additional Bluetooth dongle.

The entire instructions for this project can be found on circuitdigest, with all of the essential code scripts available for download from the author’s GitHub account.

Pirate radio station

Pirate radio station

In addition to Bluetooth & WiFi functionalities, Raspberry Pi 3 computers include a GPIO 4 pin that can be converted into an antenna — ideal for transmitting your pirate radio program over the air.

In addition to the basic needs of a Raspberry Pi 3, an SD card, and internet connectivity, this project requires you to obtain a 30cm, 12 AWG wire, which will enable you to broadcast over a broader area than a GPIO 4 pin alone.

This project may be found on pimylifeup, along with a reminder to follow your country’s radio regulations when working on it.

IoT weather station

IoT weather station

To build an Internet of Things-powered weather station you can use maybe A Raspberry Pi V3.

A temperature & relative humidity sensor, a waterproof temperature sensor, a barometric pressure sensor, a temperature and altitude sensor, a UV sensor, and an Adafruit 10-bit ADC with an SPI interface are all required.

You can find complete instructions for building an IoT weather station instructables.

A Smart Mirror

Smart Mirror

To turn your mirror into a ‘smart’ mirror, you’ll need a Raspberry Pi Wi-Fi adapter (unless it comes with one), a screen, a picture frame, and a one-way mirror. And tons of adhesive and duct tape to construct the real mirror.

Then you’ll be able to show a variety of important information, such as the current date, weather information, and music if you have any.

See on instructables for instructions on how to complete this enjoyable Raspberry Pi project.

GIF photo booth

Raspberry Pi projects

If you’re organizing a large celebration, you may not want to invest any more money in a costly photo booth.

An excellent option is to build one yourself, which is pretty simple with a Raspberry Pi and a few basic materials and tools.

Simply follow step-by-step instructions from instructables to learn how.

Internet monitor

Raspberry Pi projects

So you may just check your Wi-Fi router’s display buttons to see if it’s connected to the internet. Routers, on the other hand, are frequently located in corners, behind TV cabinets, or away from the main room of use.

In this project, you’ll be likely to construct a traffic light-style stick that tells you if your Wi-Fi is working properly or not.

Learn this on instructables.

Sound Effects Box

Raspberry Pi projects

This sound effects box project will undoubtedly be enjoyable for you. 2 speakers, 12 keys, a box, jumper wires, and, of course, a Raspberry Pi are all you need.

You can load any sound samples you want into the Raspberry Pi. Also, with 12 buttons, you’ll have plenty for any occasion.

Try out this project on instructables.

Build a Cryptocurrency Price Ticker

Raspberry Pi projects

Are you indulge in cryptocurrency? Do you have any Bitcoin or altcoins in your portfolio? If so, you may use this price ticker project to keep track of the current price.

You’ll need a Raspberry Pi 3 or higher with a connected monitor, preferably something small and portable like a HyperPixel rather than a huge wall-mounted TV. Once everything is in place, you will have a Raspberry Pi that shows the most recent cryptocurrency values from exchanges such as CoinGecko, Binance, Coinbase Pro, Kraken, and many more.

This is mainly a Raspberry Pi 4 project, but it will also work on the Raspberry Pi 3 and 3B.


With so many amazing Raspberry Pi projects for beginners, you will surely find something that piques your interest. Moreover, these basic projects are appropriate for the Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 4, and pretty much any other model you can think of.

Pick a project and give your first Pi project a go; you’ll learn the fundamentals of how to use a Pi and may even get some inspiration for your first Raspberry Pi project.
