Inventor's Kit

Full contents of the Inventor's Kit that's included with the pi-top [3].

  • pi-top PROTO+
    • A super-charged breadboard that allows you to build and connect electronic devices to your pi-top. Simply slide onto the Modular Rail and go!
  • LEDs Red, Yellow, and Green
    • 2 pin LEDs (light-emitting diodes) are little devices that emit light when an electric current flows through them.
  • Light Sensor
    • Detects the amount of light. Useful for robots to interact with their environment.
  • Metal Wire & Jumper Cables
    • Electricity can flow through it, you can use it for all sorts of projects.
  • Resistor
    • Controls the amount of electricity that flows through a circuit.
  • Temperature Sensor
    • This will change its resistance depending on the temperature around it.
  • Ultrasonic Sensor
    • Measures the distance to an object by using an ultrasonic pulse.
  • Sound Sensor
    • Measures and reacts to changes in volume.
  • Capacitor
    • An electrical component that stores electric charge a little bit like a battery.
  • Button
    • Allows or blocks the electricity flow around a circuit.
  • Variable Resistor
    • Allows you to control the amount of electricity that flows through it.
  • Buzzer
    • Will make a loud noise when electricity is passed through it.
    • The pi-topPROTO+ is a prototyping board for all your inventions. The breadboard, the white section in the middle, is where you connect the components from your Inventor's Kit.
    • The GPIO (general purpose input output) pins are a bridge between the components on the breadboard and the Raspberry Pi.
