Top 4 interesting projects for the Raspberry Pi Zero W
1. Create a Raspberry Pi Zero AirPlay Speaker
While this project in the beginning requires using a Raspberry Pi Zero with a WiFi dongle attachment, the Zero W fully does away with the need for this gadget. In combination with a low-cost 5V light-weight battery, you can actually build yourself a cool, wireless AirPlay speaker for streaming music from your Apple product.

2. Create a Raspberry Pi Zero W desk clock
Because of the Pi Zero W’s wireless abilities, it’s easy to build yourself a desktop clock that’s accurate to within two or three milliseconds. Once you have all the parts (with a display that looks straight out of a Hollywood thriller), it is easy to hook up the clock via WiFi to the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and get to sleep well realizing you’re in sync with the remainder of the planet.

3. Create your very own Raspberry Pi-powered R2-D2
For those who have always wanted to hack a toy R2-D2 into something a little bit more realistic, the Raspberry Pi Zero W is here to help. Les Pounder at TechRadar has published a tutorial for adding some wheels and attitude to the precious robot from the “Star Wars” world.

4. A Pi Zero W security camera
One of the many great obvious benefits to owning a Raspberry Pi Zero W is being able to remain connected to the online world in places lacking ethernet connection. For security camera systems, this new supplement is amazingly valuable.
At Raspberry Pi Spy, thorough guidelines have already been published to creating your individual Pi Zero W security camera. Better yet, there currently exists both a good way to mount your camera and a dedicated operating system known as motionEyeOS to tie it all together.
