The Raspberry Pi is a little circuit-board computer that was designed to be simple and cheap enough for anyone to use to learn basic programming. With the Pi, both kids and adults can learn basic coding skills and build robots, smart objects, and other intriguing and useful things, from motion-activated cameras to talking toys to weather stations to dog-food dispensers. Creative Projects with Raspberry Pi is a practical and inspiring introduction to making things with Raspberry Pi. It presents 35 projects, carefully selected to give readers an overview of the different kinds of things that the Pi can be made to do. It offers clear instructions, web links that give access to necessary computer code, and photographs and diagrams of each device that display DIY tech inventiveness at its best.
Creative Projects with Raspberry Pi by Kirsten Kearney and Will Freeman is loaded with build instructions, resources, and pointers to a bunch of cool projects... The photos are big and clear, and the introduction at the beginning will get Raspberry newbies up to speed.— Mark Frauenfelder, Boing Boing
