Google’s Project Bloks features Raspberry Pi Zero #piday #raspberypi @Raspberry_Pi

Google launched Project Bloks this week (although the project is still in active research) and it looks like the brains behind much of it is pi zero! Check out more here.

The Brain Board is built with Raspberry Pi Zero as its microcomputer and runs custom-embedded Linux specifically developed for the system. In the operating system there are the libraries and runtimes to integrate with external devices as well as an API that gives real time updates from the Base Boards and allows writing haptic and LED settings back to them individually.

Multiple Brain Boards can be connected to one another via Wi-Fi, allowing different systems to combine their inputs and outputs in a network setup.There is one Brain Board in each system and it provides power to all other Brain Boards. It also has a button to trigger the command sequence, a built in speaker and amplifier, and an optional LED panel for output.
