The Raspberry Pi now has wheels @raspberry_pi #raspberrypi @liz_upton
During the Raspberry Pi 2, Model B launch event in the UK, a person asked the Pi foundation was there “anything you wanted on the Raspberry Pi that you couldn’t to keep cost down?”. Liz Upton, the Head of Communications, Raspberry Pi Foundation said:
Liz, here are some wheels 🙂
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.
