The Big News
Dr Sam Aaron's been very busy working on the new version of Sonic Pi. Sonic Pi is a Ruby-based language that allows you to use programming script to create sounds and music. Release candidate 1 of version 2 is available for download from the Sonic Pi website. If you’re interested in making music with the Pi, or you’ve tried Sonic Pi before, I can thoroughly recommend trying it out!
Cyndi from Arkansas has created a spinner, controlled by a Raspberry Pi, for making yarn up into spools. You can read more on her blog.
