Raspberry Pi microSD and heat sink mod!

Raspberry Pi microSD and heat sink mod!. We’re expecting a lot of Pi modders as the Pi gets in to the hands of many people 🙂

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I have designed an adapter that slides right in the SD card slot and does not require modifying the raspberry pi.

    There are gerber files so you can send them do http://dorkbotpdx.org/ or some other prototyping service.

  2. Why?

    Micro SD is slower than regular sd, and this thing appears more fragile than the original (already fragile) card reader
