  • Pan Tilt Kit for Pi2Go or Pi2Go-Lite and RPi Camera (PI2GO-PT)
    Pan & Tilt Assembly for Pi2Go or Pi2Go-Lite

    *Camera NOT included unless selected

    This is now produced in a snazzy RED colour PCB. Photos will be updated shortly...

    This kit supports both Version 1 and Version 2 of the Raspberry Pi Camera module

    NB. This kit requires some soldering to assemble. We offer a soldering service if selected

    Add a camera to your Pi2Go or Pi2Go-Lite with this easy-solder Kit. Build in three ways:
    • Fixed camera mount
    • Camera with Panning using 1 servo
    • Camera with both Pan and Tilt using 2 servos
    • Pan/Tilt supported in the Python library and ScratchGPIO

    Kit comprises:
    • Plates required to make any one of the three options
    • All screws required
    • Pillars to attach to the Pi2Go or Pi2Go-Lite
    • 200mm camera cable
    • 2 Tower Pro hobby servos. Choice of standard plastic gear SG90 or carbon fibre SG92R servos
    Software support for Pi2Go-Lite is provided in the Pi2Go python library and in ScratchGPIO
    The Pi2Go uses hardware servo control (better) which is supported in the Adafruit servo/PWM library

    See this link for instructions on assembling the kit:

  • Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for Bit:Bot (BitBot) (BITSON)
    Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for Bit:Bot

    NB. Bit:Bot not included

    Ready-Soldered, just attach to your Bit:Bot with the screws provided and off you go.

    Use Microsoft PXT (or MicroPython with some awkward code) to read the distance to an obstacle, then program your Bit:Bot to avoid it.

    Both Ping and Echo signals are on the same pin (Pin 15)

    This accessory is available in 2 flavours:
    1. With the ultrasonic sensor soldered directly to the PCB
    2. With a socket soldered on the PCB that you can plug the sensor into
    The sensor soldered into the PCB is much more robust and reliable, but has a big drawback in that you cannot access the micro-USB connector on the micro:bit unless you either remove the micro:bit or use a right-angled USB lead

    The socketed version allows most USB leads to access the micro:bit, but it isn't as robust.

  • Ultrasonic Distance Sensor (Static) CrumbleBot Addon (BOTSONIC)
    Static Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for CrumbleBot

    This a simple, screw-together addon for all versions of CrumbleBot. Using the 2 mounting holes at the front, together with the power supply extension pieces (included) you can easily add distance sensing to your CrumbleBot.

    Using a single Croc Clip for the sensor reading and Crumble Software 25.2 or later, you can check if the CrumbleBot is about to hit an obstacle then avoid it if necessary.

    No soldering is required, and the kit can be assembled in a few minutes using only a small philips (cross head) screwdriver

    Contents:
    • Ready assembled ultrasonic PCB
    • Red positive power extension
    • Black negative power extension
    • 2 x M3 15mm hex pillars

  • Ultrasonic Distance Sensor (Panning) CrumbleBot Addon (BOTSONPAN)
    Panning Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for CrumbleBot

    This a simple, screw-together addon for all versions of CrumbleBot. Using the 2 mounting holes at the front, together with the power supply extension pieces (included) you can easily add distance sensing to your CrumbleBot.

    This version of the kit includes a servo to allow you to move the ultrasonic sensor left and right, using the inbuilt Crumble software commands.

    Using two Croc Clips, one for the servo and one for the for the sensor reading, as well as Crumble Software 25.2 or later, you can check if the CrumbleBot is about to hit an obstacle then avoid using a more sophisticated algorithm than just a static (non-moving) sensor. Of course, you can simply not move the sensor and use the simple software shown in the static sensor listing

    The program shown above detects an obstacle within 15cm, then looks left and right to see which direction has the closest obstacle. It then reverses out of the way of the current obstacle, before turning towards the direction with most space to move.

    No soldering is required, and the kit can be assembled in a few minutes using only a small philips (cross head) screwdriver

    Contents:
    • Ready assembled ultrasonic PCB (moving)
    • Ready assembled servo PCB (static)
    • Servo, complete with various fixings
    • Red positive power extension
    • Black negative power extension
    • 2 x M3 25mm hex pillars
    • 6 x M3 6mm screws
    • 2 x M3 nuts
    • 4 way female-female 10cm cable to connect the sensor to the static servo PCB

  • McRoboFace - Add Emotion and Fun to your Electronic Creation (MCFACE)

    McRoboFace - Add Character to your Creations!


    We all like adding blinky LEDs to our electronics creations, whether it is a robot, weather station or something that reads and displays sensor data. Now with McRoboFace you can add emotions to everything at the same time as adding blinkies.

    All the 17 RGB LEDs are fully addressable and can be controlled by most processors in the field using standard "neopixel" code. This includes Raspberry Pi, Crumble, Arduino, ESP8266, micro:bit and Codebug.

    We also offer a diffuser kit to provide that softer look. Kit contains an acrylic diffuser, screws, nuts and spacers for mounting

  • iBoost64 for Input Signal Boosting on Pirocon2 (IBOOST64)

    iBoost64 - Input Signal Booster and CleanUp for Pirocon2

    iBoost64 is a little board to boost input signals and electrically clean them up. It is designed solely for use with the Pirocon2

    Pirocon2 has 8 bi-directional pins that determine the direction (input or output) using the strength of the drive signal applied to them. We have found that some sensors have insufficient drive strength to reliably convince the level shifters that they should behave as inputs. This has the effect of appearing to randomly react to or ignore inputs – especially with marginal sensors.

    This little board can be plugged onto the pins of the Pirocon that you want to use as inputs only. With the board in place, the selected signals are always inputs and cannot be outputs.

    Because the power and ground pins go all the way across the 8×3 connector on the Pirocon, you can plug the iBoost64 into any position even with only 1 set of three pins (although it wouldn’t be very stable like that)

    The iBoost64 has 6 inputs which can either be high or low (hence the 64 because 2^6 is 64)

    • 6 non-inverting schmitt trigger inputs
    • high hysteresis so slow moving signals produce a nice clean edge for the Pi
    • Enables weak sensor outputs to drive the Pirocon directly
    • Wheel sensors on Initio can be driven with 5V as intended and plugged directly into the iBoost64

  • Agobo Mounting Kit for use with Raspberry Pi Models B+ 2B or 3B (AGO-BMTG)

    Agobo Mounting kit for Raspberry Pi B+ 2B or 3B

    When using the Agobo with a Raspberry Pi Model B+ or Model 2B, the Pi has to be raised up higher than with a Model A+ so that it clears the motors on the PCB. This kit includes the necessary screws, spacers and headers to accomplish this.

    Use the combination of 11mm and 20mm pillars to make pillars 31mm high to mount the Raspberry Pi. Use the extended header to bridge the gap electrically.

    Contents:
    • 40-Way Extra Long extended header (fits between the Agobo and the Raspberry Pi)
    • 4 x M2.5 Male-Female pillars 11mm
    • 4 x M2.5 Female-Female pillars 20mm
    • M3 x 12mm countersink screw
