    Ah, I just noticed a picture of a Pico Wireless Pack in that link you posted. Sneak peek at a new product as it's not shown at all on the Shop page?
    I've mentioned this already but I'll mention it again. I have the Pico Explorer Base on the way, should arrive any day now. I already have the Display Pack and the Omnibus.

    EDIT: Hay Jack, if you order some stuff from Pimoroni could you add a couple of those PICO Captain Resetti's to your order. I have 3 on the way but 4 PICO's. And maybe a few more depending on what is in the box from the Pi Foundation.

    that might be the difference ,never seen RaspberryPi link , When my brain slows down a bit, I'll check it out ,,,all I went to was the pimoroni link and used there uF2 file ...

    I do believe the demos for that are here,
    GitHub - raspberrypi/pico-playground
    And you need the official Pi Foundation uf2 file for the VGA Demo.
    The Pimoroni shop page says

    This board will run the various video example programs that Raspberry Pi have put together to demonstrate features of the RP2040.

    Please note that VGA Demo Base only currently works with the C/C++ Pico SDK!

    That's the weird bit, to me it is anyway, the Pi Foundation haven't released a VGA Demo board or pack? They just posted the code and the specs on what it should be etc?

    Robotics used to be quit pricey, anything with servos in it. Now its actually pretty affordable. Toys wise anyway. They don't need super pricy super accurate servo's.

    Good news, bad news.
    Good news is I just got this e-mail,
    Your DHL Express shipment with waybill number ########## from RASPBERRY PI TRADING LTD is on its way.
    Bad news is, it only just shipped today. So I won't see it until next week some time.
