Gertboard first contact
Raspberry Pi's Gertboard expansion board already works (video)
In the middle of December last year the Raspberry Pi Foundation made a surprising announcement that not only would we see the $25 PC released in 2012, it would also be getting an expansion board–possibly joining it at launch.
The expansion board is called the Gertboard, and is being developed by Broadcom employee Gert van Loo in his spare time. When completed, it will allow Raspberry Pi owners to play around with flashing LEDs, electric motors, and a range of different sensors. It effectively takes the $25 Raspberry Pi beyond just being a very cheap PC.
I can't wait to get my hands on a Raspberry!:) Read More about the Raspberry Pi and see the video of it in action on my previous Blog Post here...
