New products from The Pi Hut and Average Man for the Raspberry Pi

Today sees the release of two brand new products, available exclusively from The Pi Hut and designed by Richard Saville (aka the Average Man).


The first is a very pretty new motor driver board called MotoZero. It allows you to control four DC motors independently, courtesy of two H-bridge chips. It is in the Zero-form factor (although it will fit any 40-pin Pi), comes in kit form (solder it yourself) and costs £10. In a crowded market of motor controller boards, it’s got a lovely aesthetic design and the price is very reasonable considering that you get two chips. You can buy it direct from The Pi Hut.


The second product is for the camera module and the Raspberry Pi Zero and it is called the Zero View. It is a long piece of circuit board onto which you attach the camera and comes with two ‘suckers’. These suckers can be used to attach the board to a window or piece of glass. It is ideal for the Zero because it mounts to the bottom of the Raspberry Pi, leaving the GPIO pins available. As you can see from the picture above, it attaches to the Zero with four screws, but it will attach to any other Pi with just the two at the top. Spacers and fixings are included so everything fits together very well. It costs £7 and is available from the Pi Hut.

I’ve been sent these boards by Jamie over at The Pi Hut and will get some time this coming weekend to try them out!
