I found from a recent Raspberry Jam that there are too many people who know little or nothing about soldering or programming.
I want to change this by going back to basics with a kit that once soldered together can be programmed easily or added on to other projects.
I want to be able to sell a kit that is low cost and affordable, thus why I am looking to Kickstarter for funding.
By funding this project you will know that this kit will become the backbone in a range of future kits and add ons that we have planned.
So why another Pi add on board? Well after looking around I was finding that add on boards could either only be used one at a time or they were too expensive. I believe that with a simple back to basics approach that can be built upon and with extended GPIO headers you can incorporate the board into other projects like a notifier on top of a robot controller add on board.
I already have ideas for future boards, that can incorporate this board and others.
The picture above of the black PCB and White PCB were version one that after sending off to the PCB fabricators I decided to alter slightly and came up with a better board.
The final design is this two layer PCB here:
The only thing left now is to finalise the colour, white being a popular colour, but I am in contact with the fabricators to see what colours they could do including (hopefully) a unique colour for the Kickstarter project.
So here is my idea, let's make it a reality and thank you for taking the time to view my Kickstarter project.
Risks and challenges
Risks are minimal as we are now through the funded level and most of the raw product has been ordered and pcb maker is finalising our atomic green board colour. We are also hoping to have all shipments out by September starting mid august for the first early bird shipment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
