Brian Corteil and Pimoroni team up to launch Raspberry Pi robotics kit

At Pi Wars, Coretec‘s Brian Corteil showed off his new robotics kit – the Tiny 4WD – on the Obstacle Course. Here’s a video of it in action:

You can now get hold of a kit for this lovely little robot from Pimoroni’s online store. Here is the list of contents:

  • Explorer pHAT with motor drivers and IO
  • Acrylic Chassis with camera mount
  • All the needed nuts and bolts
  • 4x Micro Metal Gear Motor with easy-connect shims
  • 4x Motor Mounts
  • 4x Grippy Moon Buggy Wheels
  • Mini Breadboard
  • Jumper Jerky to hook it all up

You just need a Pi (preferably a Pi Zero W), an SD card and a power source to complete it.

The kit is available for £55 and you can get hold of it here.

See MagPi Issue #51 and #52 for construction and expansion tips.

Brian entering the Pi robotics arena is great news – he brings a “maker sensibility” to this crowded market and teaming up with Pimoroni for fulfilment is a master stroke. Brian is well-known in Pi circles for his maker projects and for bringing Micro Pi Noon to the masses so you can be sure of the quality of the kit and his expertise. And let’s not forget: he’s won his category in Pi Wars for the past two years – this man knows his robots!
