This is a short video going over a project I just finished to prove that a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (new as of February 2015) can run a light duty website and low volume email server. I have installed Apache2 for the web server, which takes like 2 minutes for the basic install, and Postfix and Dovecot for the email server. The mail server definitely takes longer to set up but with the detailed, step by step instructions available at the link below it is really easy to do.
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.
