Raspberry Pi

A site to document my adventures with the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer that can plug in to a regular TV and keyboard.

I plan to use mine to control the higer level functions of my robot. I have the additional camera board so should be able to capture and process high resolution images. But the Raspberry Pi could be used for anything such as a media center, a webserver, or a general purpose computer.

Pi Cobbler

The Pi cobbler allows you to break out the power, GPIO, I2C and SPI pins from the 26 pin header to a solderless breadboard. This makes it easy to experiment with circuits with reduced risk of connecting to the wrong pin and damaging the Pi. This comes as a small kit consisting of a circuit board, headers and ribbon cabel.
