Dexter Industries has partnered with Instructables to bring a fun twist to National Pie Day! Enter any project built using a Raspberry Pi to win a GrovePi or GoPiGo.
We have developed a library for EV3 and Dexter Industries sensors. Our library is completely open source and you can see everything in ouropen source github repository.
The Arduberry Airhorn project connects the web and a set of industrial air horns to alert us when a new backer backs our Kickstarter project.

The C Elegans worm is one of the most-studied animals in science. In neurobiology, it’s the most basic brain model scientists use to study how the brain works. Now you can have a robot that thinks like one! The C Elegans worm brain has been brought to the Raspberry Pi Robot. The Connectome project has […]
Hot of the heels of our NodeJS announcement, GoPiGo is getting yet another language: Java. The library was added by prolific adder Marcello Barile. Thank you Marcello! You can now write Raspberry Pi robot programs in Java! Get Started You can find the full Java library for the GoPiGo in Github here. If you pull […]
When we originally designed the GoPiGo, we wrote the software in Python. We did this because it’s an easy language to use and to learn. One of the major advantages of making open source hardware is that our community can help open up new things for our hardware. Folks have taken some of our projects and really […]
The Sandbox Summit, a two-day educational conference, was held at one of MIT’s beautiful creative buildings in Cambridge, MA. It opened with a “do whatever you want”-version of patty cake, which got everyone on their feet, and ended with everyone dancing around to “Happy”. I know that may sound more like an Amway or Cutco […]
There’s this cool new thing, you might have heard of: the Internet of Things. You’ve probably seen lots of commercials from the likes of IBM or Samsung about how your dishwasher will be connected to your car, and your toilet will become wired to your telephone and your toaster will know your playlist. The future […]
This month we’re re-introducing the GrovePi+ Starter Kit. The starter kit us updated with a new set of sensors, and the new GrovePi+ board. It comes in a handsome plastic case, along with printed instructions on how to get started. New in the Starter Kit Most notably, we’ve added a beautiful set of color printed instructions […]
What happens when you take an old Lionel model train system and add some web-control? This week, we set out to control a Lionel model train set with the Raspberry Pi. In this project, we go step by step through the parts, hardware, and software to control a Lionel model train set over the web. We […]
TLDR: Our Products Work with the Raspberry Pi 2 Too long, didn’t read the rest of the post: all of our boards and robots work with the Raspberry Pi 2 – just needs a simple update. The GoPiGo, the BrickPi, the GrovePi, and the Arduberry will all work with the new Raspberry Pi 2, but you have […]
We received a Raspberry Pi 2 from Newark this morning! John was so excited. Notable Differences There’s a chip on the bottom! The Raspberry Pi 2 ships with a nice little instruction booklet. This should be really helpful for new users. Notable Similarities Fortunately for us, the Raspberry Pi B+ and the Raspberry Pi 2 […]
What if your robot could “see” the world around it? One of the most “eye-opening” things you can do with your robot project is to add vision. This is commonly called computer vision, and has recently been made affordable by the dropping cost of digital cameras (thanks to the massive amounts of smartphones being cranked out!). Even […]
We set out a few months ago to make it easy to turn your Raspberry Pi into a Robot. We wanted to make getting started as easy and as quick as possible, especially for beginners. Over the past two months, we’ve published a few tutorials on projects you can use with the GoPiGo. No technology is useful when […]
We’ve just added a new Raspberry Pi Case to our lineup, the BrickPi B+ Case. This new Raspberry Pi Case offers a few advantages over the standard case that ships with the BrickPi Advanced: LEGO Mounting on all 6 sides. Case protection on all 6 sides. Cleaner fit with the Model B+ Raspberry Pi. This […]
We’ve just updated our instructions and improved Scratch for the BrickPi. It’s now simpler than ever to get started making and programming a Scratch Raspberry Pi Robot! What’s Changed with Scratch? This summer, we devoted a bit of effort to updating the the BrickPi software. It’s now easier to install, and easier to program with. […]
This month we’re re-introducing the GrovePi, telling everyone about how awesome the GrovePi is, and re-introducing our redesigned GrovePi Starter Kit. What’s the GrovePi? GrovePi connects your Raspberry Pi to the Grove Sensor System. No soldering or breadboard. Your Raspberry Pi computer enters the physical world. Think of it as LEGO for electronics. The Grovepi Starter Kit […]
Looking for adventure? Last month we quietly released a beta version of the BrickPi firmware that will allow you to use EV3 sensors and the BrickPi. We wanted to invite all that are interested pushing the state of the art further to give the firmware a test. (more…)

Dwalton76 over at programmablebrick has built a programmable LEGO digital clock with the BrickPi. (more…)
Raspberry Pi Model B+ Recently the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced an “incremental” version of the Raspberry Pi Model B, the Model B+. While we were excited to see some improvements, we held our breath as we tested the Dexter Industries hardware. The Good news: everything fits and work with the new Model B+. (more…)
With a few months of EV3 under our belt, we thought we would share some of what we learned about connecting the EV3 with the Arduino. The Arduino is a fantastic system for tinkering with electronics. (more…)
