Kickstarter Campaign!

Raspberry Pi Robot ShooterWe’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign for the BrickPi!  We’ve had a phenomenal response, surpassing our funding goal by over 800% in just a few days.

The campaign is fully funded, but that doesn’t mean the work is over.  Please take a look and give us your thoughts: on the design, the models we built, and what we could do better!  The primary reason we wanted to do a Kickstarter campaign for this project was to try to get community feedback.

Check out the project and let us know what you think about it.  We have a bunch of new video and pictures up on the Kickstarter page that showcase some of the projects you can build with the BrickPi.

And if you’d like to back the project, that’s awesome too!

    Awesome work guys! 🙂
    I’d suggest a slight change in the case and motor/sensor board. From what I see, the board is currently only held in place by the GPIO pins. I suggest splitting the standoffs for the top and bottom case, and mount the brickpi board in between. Maybe even use the holes in the model B Rpi board to secure both the pi and the brickpi.

    Are the brickpi boards endlessly stackable? As in, can you just put three on top of each other and access all the ports separately? Or will all ports A B and C be in parallel?

    Anyway, I hope it will be available soon. 🙂

      Hey Cyrus,
      Yes, you will after August hopefully. Once we take care of our backers on the kickstarter project, we’ll start carrying this on our website.

  3. I am doing research with LEGO robots and OpenSim virtual worlds. See website. I think this be a great addition to our project. Can you alert me when it is available to purchase please 🙂
