While the diminutive Raspberry Pi computer offers great bang for the buck, it requires quite a bit of technical knowledge to turn it into something useful. The Piper is a complete kit that lets kids and adults alike build their own working computer with the Raspberry Pi as its brains.
Piper teaches the fundamentals of computer engineering through its assembly process, and as you go. Once you build the computer, you’re not done either. A special Minecraft map continues to teach, as it guides you through the process of creating additional circuits while interacting with the game. The system includes buttons, LED lights, buzzers, buttons and switches, and breadboards for creating more circuits.
The complete Piper system normally sells for $295(USD), but we’ve got it in the Technabob Shop for a limited time for just $239, a savings of 18%.
