The tiny computer board known as the Raspberry Pi has been with us for more than four years now, and we’ve seen several upgrades in that time. The most recent was the Raspberry Pi 3 launched in February, bringing with it Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Just as impressive as the compact electronics that make up the Pi are the many different ways DIY computer enthusiasts have put these machines to good use. Here are some of the best ideas we’ve seen so far, which you can use as inspiration for your own projects.

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.
