PiStorms Challenge

pistorms-starter-kit-raspberry-pi-brain-for-lego-robot.jpgSo, you like Raspberry Pi but would prefer to build with LEGO?  No problem!  You can use the Mindsensors PiStorms to add a touch screen, buttons and motor and sensor ports to your Pi.  The designs for the LEGO Technic compatible parts that come with this are completely open source and available for anyone to tweak as they see fit.

For those of you with access to a 3D printer (or simply awesome 3D design skills), you can now enter a competition to design your own LEGO Technic compatible frame for the PiStorms.

The way it works is as follows, simply fork the GitHub repo with an example frame and start hacking away at it!  So, what can you win?  Why, a PiStorms, of course!  Mindsensors will ship it to anywhere in the world.  The competition ends 15 May 2016.
