Just add a Raspberry Pi to get inventing with our comprehensive Laika inventors kit. The Laika platform allows control of motors, switches, lamps, robots and more using Scratch, Python or C on your computer. The system is simple, and anyone can start by using the Scratch programming language to control hardware in a matter of minutes: download the drivers, connect to the Rapsberry Pi with a USB cable and Scratch away! With our inventors kit you can control motors, LEDs, a seven segment display, and much more! You can find tutorials on the Project Laika website here. Kit includes:
  • 1x Laika Explorer.
  • 1x 2.5A 5V UK plug power adaptor (2.1mm) to drive the Explorer and the included motors.
