In this video we’ll take a very close look at the new Pi 400, so close we’ll even open it up and take a peek inside. We’ll also discuss a number of different ways you might want to use your Pi 400 and give you a quick glance of some new things coming to the channel. *NOTE: The Python program shown in this video may also be found below, if you want to avoid re-typing it.
