You’ll get fourteen Flotilla modules, three complete kits – the audibly offensive Noisemaker synth, a cute little paper-craft mood light, and an all-singing, all-dancing line-following robot – as well as eight other super-simple Cookbook recipes to get you up and running in two turns of a ship’s wheel — wow!

Flotilla is designed to progress with you as your skills develop. You don’t need any coding skills or electronics knowledge to get started, you can simply plug and play!

A Raspberry Pi computer setup is required for use! We recommend a Raspberry Pi 3, USB power supply, SD card with NooBs, enclosure, keyboard, mouse, and a monitor.

For beginners Flotilla has Cookbook and Rockpool, two web-based apps which you can access from your computer or tablet. They let you experiment, learn, and build without writing a single line of code. For anyone who’s done a little programming before, Pimoroni also has a complete Python API that lets you talk to all of the Flotilla modules.
