Raspberry Pi Zero

New Raspberry Pi Zero

Have you placed an order for the Raspberry Pi Zero with us after April 7th? Good news – you will be receiving the newest version of the Raspberry Pi Zero! What is different with the new Raspberry Pi Zero? As of today, the Zero now includes a camera port for the awesome Raspberry Pi Camera. The remainder of the Pi Zero continues to be the same. Also, with that news it appears that production of the Zero is finally going to be stepped up so we may see a steady supply of Zeros in the coming weeks.

Want to get your hands on one of these upgraded Pi Zero? We highly recommend placing an order!

Raspberry Pi Camera Version V2.1

New Raspberry Pi Camera

Production of the original Pi Camera’s image sensor ended in 2014 so we have known for quite some time that there would be a new Pi Camera coming – it was only a matter of time! The new Pi Camera is a higher resolution an 8MP Sony IMX219 and features better color representation, better image quality, and better low light performance in addition to the increased resolution. At this time the video resolution / record rates are the same 1080P @ 30FPS, 720P @ 60FPS, and VGA @ 90FPS but using the new image sensor, the overall quality should be much better.

Arduino bridge project

VIU Engineering Bridge Design Contest 2016

This year the goal was to build a prototype bridge the proposed Tram / Pedestrian crossing in Alphen, Netherlands. Many of the students have been visiting us over the past few weeks, picking up different parts for their projects and seeking advice. It was really awesome to finally see how they used everything to create their bridges. All of the bridges looked great!
