NEW TUTORIAL: Pi-Top Assembly

The Pi-Top is a cute kit that lets you add a monitor, keyboard, trackpad, to your Pi while making it easy to access hardware for DIY experimentation!

Why Pi-Top?

  • The Pi is an excellent catcher for household IoT data. With built-in screen / keyboard it makes it that much easier to debug code issues.
  • Battery backup helps avoid nasty file system crashes should the power go out.
  • Arduinos can be programmed from the Pi-Top and there is plenty of room under the acrylic screen to keep a mini development board.
  • KiCad can runs on Raspberry Pi. It performs reasonably well on version 3.
  • The battery life of the Pi-Top is awesome at 12 hours.
  • A neat little console environment for the Pi will clean up your workspace.
  • The Pi-Top seems like the kind of laptop that would be pure spectacle should it make an appearance in a trendy coffee shop.

Come with us as we put one together….

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.
