Raspberry Pi 3+ Starter Kit

New Product Roundup – June 10th to June 16th

Welcome back to another edition of our Saturday New Product Roundup! We have three new products available in the shop this week, including a Media Center version of our always popular Raspberry Pi Starter Kit with a new, lower, price! We also have a new (and strong!) N50 Rare Earth magnet, and a new JST-PH 2 pin male cable.

Before we have a look at each of these new products, just a quick note: With the Canada Day long weekend coming up we will be extending the weekend a little on each side so that we can all enjoy some time off. Our showroom will be closed between June 28th and July 4th, but online orders will continue to ship.

Alright, with that message out of the way – let’s go have a closer look at each of this week’s new products!

Pi Friday – May Edition

A very popular thing to do with a Pi is make some variety of robot; maybe a crawler or wheeled vehicle or a manipulator arm or perhaps something a bit wilder like a humaniod or even an eight armed pogo-stick-using nightmare from the depths of your id.
