Not too long ago, the only people allowed to build and play with robots were dressed in white lab coats and boasted engineering degrees from fancy universities.
This antiquated trope has thankfully given way to a far more democratized environment regarding robotics and electrical engineering in general, and now, anyone with enough curiosity and a small amount of cash can build fully automated robotic systems in the comfort of his or her own home.
The famed Raspberry Pi—a remarkably small-yet-versatile computer that can be used to build a virtually limitless number of programming and robotic projects—embodies this new DIY approach to engineering. But if you want to unleash its full potential, you have to have the right accessories.
As its name implies, the 37 Sensors Starter Kit for Raspberry Pi opens up countless new programming and engineering possibilities by outfitting your Pi with 37 unique sensor modules, and it’s on sale for over 15% of at just $79.99.
Every sensor in this pack has been re-designed to facilitate tighter, more convenient wiring and patching. There are detailed schematic diagrams for each sensor that give you an in-depth understanding of both how they work and how they can be implemented, and specific Fritzing images are drawn for each module so you will be able to create your own designs from scratch.
If you are looking for project inspiration, there is an additional set of instructions for 35 sensor-based projects—from auto-flash LEDs to rain detection robots and beyond—to get you started.
And thanks to an intuitive visual programming language, seasoned engineers and complete programming novices alike will be able to enjoy this kit.
Drastically expand the capabilities of your Raspberry Pi with the 37 Sensors Starter Kit for Raspberry Pi for just $79.99—over 15% off its usual price.
