Initially intended as a tool for getting kids interested in computing, the Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer that has evolved into something of prominence in the world of robotics and programming. This kit includes a Raspberry Pi and TF Card with Raspbian system and Dragit programming language pre-installed, 37 newly-designed sensor modules, and instructions for building 35 products from auto-flash LEDs to rain detection to tracking sensors. Each module has schematic diagrams that help its builder gain a deeper understanding of how it works, so they can design and build games, robots, and tools easily.
