Raspberry Fool

A PiBot with tracked chassis from Rapid Electronics

Wait! There's more?

You're not limited to making little tanks either. The PiBot board will control two DC motors (we recommend 370 size), so you could potentially make a hovercraft, an airship or any other two-channel device (A windmill anyone?) The board is pretty much plug and play with a Raspberry Pi, and is controlled using the standard GPIO pin controls on the Pi. Have a look at the sample code on GitHub to work out how to get yours going, and if you're planning on using this in an educational context, bear with us while we create some great teaching resources that contain fun projects for children aged 4-16. The PiBot can be controlled using virtually any programming language that can be developed on the Raspberry Pi, and currently we have demo code in C, Python and also an interface into Scratch, which is really fun for younger coders.

Raspberry Fool is made up of a great team of humans.
