It’s crazy to think that we live in an age where anyone can build their own functional robot. Thanks to platforms like the Raspberry Pi and Arduino, it’s far less difficult than in years past, but it’s by no means easy. For starters, building a Raspberry Pi-based robot typically requires you to buy all the smaller boards and wire them together.
The new Robot Core V1.2 simplifies the entire process by placing everything you need onto a single board. This includes a DC-DC converter, servo and brushed DC motor controls, analog input ports, and even a breakaway prototyping space for your own circuits or add-ons.
It’s compatible with both Raspberry Pi and the Arduino, not to mention a great platform for STEM education. The support documents are also very thorough, even offering guidance on getting started with python.
