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 🙂
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.
