In a few days we celebrate the 1st birthday of the Raspberry Pi and to kick off the celebrations, we presented Pete Lomas (of the Raspberry Pi Foundation) and Andrew Robinson (creator of the PiFace) with this Giant CAKE at the Embedded World conference, as well as presenting them with the element 14 community award for most innovative product! Congratulations to the Raspberry Pi foundation and everyone else involved with bringing the Raspberry Pi to the world. Here’s to the future! PS: Can you guess how big the cake is? We’ll be posting some images to show you how it was made later in the week!
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.
