Our newest version of the micro:bot kit is available today, along with two new products for your Raspberry Pi.
Hello everyone, this week we have three new products, starting with the newest, Qwiic-enabled version of the SparkFun micro:bot kit. We also have a new version of the SmartiPi Touch for your Raspberry Pi 4, as well as the pHAT Stack from Pimoroni to optimize all of your add-ons.
Robots are fun, and the micro:bit is the perfect controller for learning how to build and program robots! Combining the micro:bit with the SparkFun moto:bit carrier board creates a flexible, low-cost, Qwiic-enabled robotics platform for robot enthusiasts young and old! With the SparkFun micro:bot kit you will be able to create simple robots quickly, without spending hours learning how to build and program your bot.
The SparkFun micro:bot kit does not include a micro:bit board. The micro:bit board will need to be purchased separately.
The SmartiPi Touch 2 is a case and stand for the official Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen LCD. The display securely fits into the case with four screws, while a Raspberry Pi 2, 3, B+, A+ or 4 can be enclosed in the compartment on the back with a vented door. A ribbon cable that comes with the display connects into the Raspberry Pi's DSI port. The stand has a pivot that allows you to adjust the angle of the screen for better viewing, as well as mounting points to affix it to a certain location.
The SmartiPi Touch 2 does not include an LCD, camera, Raspberry Pi or any other electronics. This product only contains the case and additional assembly parts.
A preposterous pile of peripherals on your Pi! The fully assembled pHAT Stack by Pimoroni is the ultimate way to add HATs, pHATs, wHATs and everything in between to your Raspberry Pi. If you've been playing around with Raspberry Pi boards for any length of time, chances are you've collected a few HATs and/or pHATs along the way. The pHAT Stack has six sets of 2 x 20 pin headers, one for connecting to your Pi with the included ribbon cable, and the other five for a mix of HATs and/or pHATs. Use pHAT Stack for specific setups and projects, or just as a handy way to use several HATs and/or pHATs at once.
