ZeroPi dev kit is compatible with Arduino and Raspberry Pi

With an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi to play with there is no limit to the things that can be created. If your tastes lie towards creating robotics and new dev kit has debuted that will give you more flexibility and allow you to create impressive robotics inventions and it's called the ZeroPi. The dev kit is a robotic motion structure system.

ZeroPi is Arduino Zero Compatible and uses an Atmel SAMD21J18 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ as the MCU. That MCU is fully compatible with Arduino Zero, Raspberry Pi, and other hardware resources dedicated for robot drive. ZeroPi can be used in multiple application scenarios including 3D printing, CNC, tracked mobile robot and just about any others the builder can dream up.

The dev kit has M4 holes that are compatible with Makeblock Aluminum mechanical parts or open source robotics projects. ZeroPi is capable of controlling 11 micro servos and 8 DC motors at the same time, or four stepper motors. 4-channel SLOT module is compatible with common stepper motor and DC drive motors and supports open source sensors.

ZeroPi was on Kickstarter seeking $5,000 and has raised over $23,000 at the time of writing with 25 days to go on the project before funding. A pledge of $24 or more will get you a ZeroPi with shipping expected in December.
