A robot with the brains of a Raspberry Pi and the easy build of LEGO®.
We would like to introduce the BrickPi : a project at Dexter Industries to turn the Raspberry Pi into a robot.
The BrickPi is a slide-on board that turns your Raspberry Pi into a robot. The BrickPi helps you connect LEGO® Mindstorms sensors, motors, and parts to easily turn your credit card size computer into a powerful robot.
Buy the BrickPi
You can now purchase the BrickPi from our website here!
The BrickPi allows you to build robots with LEGO® Technic parts, LEGO® Mindstorms sensors and motors, and the Raspberry Pi. Some highlights of the product include:
- Connect up to 4 NXT or EV3 motors.
- Connect up to 5 NXT sensors, both digital and analog.
- Powers the Raspberry Pi. Free your Raspberry Pi from the wall with the power supply of the BrickPi.
- Attach your LEGO® Technic bricks to the BrickPi case and make an awesome robot!
The Raspberry Pi has enthralled the STEM education world. A tiny, credit card sized computer for $25, students, hobbyists, and nerds are snapping the Raspberry Pi up by the millions.
And they’re doing some amazing stuff with it: computer game clones, entertainment systems, teaching kids how to code, and feeding their pets over the internet. It has been embraced as a computer, but it has even more potential as a robot.
Our dream is to turn your Raspberry Pi into a robot. And we will do that with something we’ve made called BrickPi.
The BrickPi makes robotics with Raspberry Pi simple. The BrickPi combines the hackable computing power of the Raspberry Pi with easy-to-build, modular LEGOs.
Way forward: What’s Left to Do?
We could really use your help! We have our code and design up on Github here. We could use some help impoving it and the design. Please fork and contribute!
