The Laika platform allows control of motors, switches, lamps, robots and more using Scratch, Python or C on your Raspberry Pi.
The system is simple, and anyone can start by using the Scratch programming language to control hardware in a matter of minutes: download the drivers, plug in the USB cable and Scratch away!
All this whilst being powerful and flexible enough to meet the needs of advanced users – a high-speed, reliable design with a variety of programming interfaces.
