This month’s MagPi contains another great selection of hardware, software and programming articles.
Michael Giles explains how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a magic wand with a fun hardware project that demonstrates the persistence of vision effect, while John Mahorney from Suncoast Science Center in Florida shows how a Raspberry Pi is used to display dynamic art. Big news this month is the launch of the Model B+ and MagPi writer Aaron Shaw has all the details for you on page 22.
