Get physical with computing: Build a robot buggy with Raspberry Pi and Python! #RaspberryPi
This week on Getting Physical with computing Raspberry pi shared this project on their blog and youtube!
Think of all the things you can create when you get physical with computing: robots, self-sewing sewing machines, automated candy dispensers…! The possibilities are endless, so let your imagination create the blueprint for your next masterpiece.
Our team of educators are diving hands-first into some awesome projects that you can follow along with:
Build a cool robot buggy
Let’s use Raspberry Pi and your Python skills to build a robot buggy that you can control remotely! Marc and Jimi help you along the way. This project is based on our ‘Robot buggy’ guide.
If you want to build a simpler buggy without soldering, follow our ‘Explorer HAT buggy’ guide.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
