This inexplicably-named laptop computer is the all-in-one electronics toolkit you’re most likely searching for. Powered by a Raspberry Pi, the CrowPi2 encompasses a display and keyboard in addition to a panoply of inputs and outputs that hearkens again to the 100-in-1 electronics kits of yore.
The laptop computer is fully-funded on Kickstarter and can ship this month. The CrowPi2 is a successor to, naturally, the CrowPi and this mannequin options 22 sensors and buttons in addition to classes in programming Scratch, Python, Minecraft, and even facial recognition utilizing the built-in digital camera.
You may even “make a piano utilizing completely different fruits.” I imply…
The new mannequin is much extra laptop-like than the unique CrowPi and if the Kickstarter is to be believed you’ll be capable of play arcade video games and even work together with newbie IDEs utilizing the complete complement of inputs, permitting you to play Flappy Bird with the contact sensor and measure sound ranges utilizing the built-in microphones and LED array. Because this doesn’t appear to be a toy, I think dad and mom may have a better time convincing their younglings to not dump this onto the ground like they do each different STEM product.
The primary mannequin prices about $210 for early birds. If you determine the way to make music with a kumquat, do tell us.
