BBC Buggy meets Raspberry Pi via youtube
A 1983 BBC Buggy being prepped for DigiMakers Bristol on October 4th, “Turtle Geometry the Python Way.” The Buggy is untethered from the BBC Micro and is controlled by a model A Raspberry Pi strapped to it’s back. Uses the IO Pi from AB Electronics, the PiBorg BattBorg to regulate the 12V from the Maplin lead/acid battery (needed for the stepper motors) down to 5V, and the SliceCase customizable box for the Pi.
