MagPi, and the return of the Skutter
We always flag the latest issue of MagPi, the magazine devoted to the popular dev board… and the September issue is out.
What’s in issue #16? Well, there’s another look at a Skutter, which shows how you can expand the number of inputs and outputs that can be controlled from a Raspberry Pi using I2C, allowing you to add more sensors to your bot while driving the base unit.
There’s also a plug and play LED matrix board, learning how to scroll text on the Pi Matrix, a look at the LOGI-PI Spartan6 FPGA board, Part 2 of a look at a USB Arduino Link, Part 2 of Building and parsing XML in Python, an events guide, a book review of “Raspberry Pi in Easy Steps and Python for Kids”, and much more…
