Kidsruby Robot Edition Available for the Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_pi #piday #raspberrypi
Kidsruby Robot Edition, a programming environment for kids, can now be installed on the Raspberry Pi!
We’ve just released the latest KidsRuby version 1.3, and we’re very excited to announce built-in support for the Sphero robotic ball from Orbotix (http://gosphero.com). If you were at RubyConf in Denver you might have seen the preview, and now we’ve got everything you need to get started learning about the wonderful world of robotics! Support for more robots coming soon…
In addition, we now have the standalone KidsRuby Installer for Raspberry Pi (Raspbian), and KidsRuby Installer for Debian, including Ubuntu and other Debian-based Linux versions.
Get them while they’re hot from our download page at http://kidsruby.com/download.

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.
