Anyone who is interested in creating projects for the Internet of Things might be interested in a new piece of hardware which has been created specifically for the Raspberry Pi Zero to help create IoT projects with ease.
The GrovePi-Zero hardware has been created by Dexter Industries and has this wee been launched by Kickstarter to raise the $3000 the team requires to take the hardware into production. The GrovePi Zero has been designed to simplify the creation of Internet of Things projects and removes the need for jumpers, breadboards as well as loose parts which can hinder the creation of projects.
Check out the video below to learn more about the open source GrovePi-Zero hardware from its creators, who explained :
The GrovePi Zero makes electronics prototyping with the Raspberry Pi Zero easy and fast. The powerful little Raspberry Pi Zero is just waiting for you to release your maker creativity and build the projects you’re passionate about. With the GrovePi Zero you can start your connected device projects in minutes.
You can use the hundreds of sensors offered in the Grove module family: everything from a distance sensor, light sensor, temperature and humidity sensor, buttons, and displays. There are literally hundreds of electronic modules for your project! GrovePi Zero has a compact form factor, making your design small. The design fits neatly over the Raspberry Pi Zero.
Our rich open source programming examples and libraries make it easy to connect your sensors and interact with the physical world. The GrovePi Zero comes with many options for programming. Our community-developed software library has programming examples for most Grove sensors in Python, C, Java, and Scratch. Our examples and libraries are clearly documented, making them easy to understand and use.
