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.
