PiBot-B is a small mobile robot based on the Raspberry Pi. He moves on caterpillar tracks ahead and thus can overcome slight unevenness in the floor such as carpet edges. A supplied image of a webcam video is transmitted wirelessly to an iPhone, with a simple app the vehicle can be controlled remotely. An LED display built into the robot housing is used to display various operating conditions. (translated from the original)

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
