Raspberry Pi enthusiasts searching for unique Raspberry Pi add-on boards might be interested in a new article created by the Average Man vs Raspberry Pi who has collated information on seven undiscovered add-on boards that add extra functionality a Raspberry Pi, and might spark inspiration for that next Pi project.
The featured Raspberry Pi add-on boards include the Berry GPS-IMU which adds an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, temperature sensor, GPS and a barometric sensor to your Raspberry Pi mini PC. Score Zero allows you to easily add gaming controls to your Raspberry Pi. OpenPlotter HAT As the name suggests allows you to create a fully blown chartplotter. If you’re looking to overclocking your Raspberry Pi you can use a water cooled Raspberry Pi system or the GeekWorm Smart Temperature Control Board equipped with fan and temperature sensors. AM vs RP explains more about the collection of Raspberry Pi add-on boards.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I returned to the Pi, and I’m already seeing people using the same old default add-on boards all over the internet. Don’t get me wrong – they’re popular because they’re good quality, useful and affordable – but they don’t excite me. What does excite me is when I find small batches of weird little wonders lurking in the dark, dingy alleyways of the internet. Odd little boards from different places, in different colours with different features.They’re not mass-market, they’re not easy to find, and they’re usually not as cheap as mainstream options – but they are different – and that makes them interesting.
