Learn How-to Design and Build a Raspberry Pi Robot @Rasbperry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
This tutorial shows you how to design and build a Raspberry Pi robot! from penguin tutor.
When I first showed my Raspberry Pi based “Ruby Robot” at the Raspberry Jam at Pycon UK, I promised a guide would be forthcoming. I’ve now finished the first draft of my guide to creating the robot.
The guide does more than just take the reader through the steps to create a robot. It also covers the design process involved in creating the design and some of the decisions I went through in creating the robot.
eBook – Desgin and build a Raspberry Pi robot
The robot is just the starting point to create an initial working version. I have several ideas for new features and improvements to the robot, but the idea is for the reader to have their own ideas and turn it into a truly personal robot.
At the moment the guide is a draft pdf document. I intend to publish this as a free eBook in future (including putting it on the Raspberry Pi store). As this will be made available free of charge I don’t have a budget for technical reviewers or proof-readers, but would very much appreciate feedback on the guide if anyone finds any mistakes.

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.
