Today marks a rather special day. I’ve just launched a KickStarter campaign for a brand new Raspberry Pi add-on board called the RasPiO Duino.
“Why is that special?” I hear you ask. Well it’s special for us because it’s our first fully solo venture in hardware. Also, my wife Malgosia is coming on-board to help with the kitting, shipping and admin. So it’s the start of a new family enterprise as well, which is all very exciting. It’s been in the works for a long time, but certain other things had to line up before we could start.
So What Is RasPiO Duino?
The best way to answer that is to watch the video or visit the RasPiO Duino KickStarter page
…but basically it’s a board that brings together the worlds of Pi and Arduino, and if you’re quick, you can grab one of the limited early birds for £9 plus shipping.
It’s been in the works a long time and could have been launched back in September 2014, but we had to wait for HDMIPi to clear first. This photo shows the progression in design revisions…
There is a rev 7 board in the works at RagWorm right now. I decided to rotate the orientation of the proto area to accomodate chips up to 14×2.
Please pop over to the KickStarter page and back the project. It’ll have some great instructions, tutorials and videos done RasPi.TV style.
