    (Re)Introducing the GrovePi

    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 is a quick-start kit...
