Raspberry Pi & Maker goodies
Curated range of best of breed products.
These cables are perfect for connecting your Flotilla modules to the Dock, and the Dock to your computer. They're high-spec cables, designed specifically to deal with the higher currents that the Flotilla components can draw, and we've even stamped the Flotilla logo onto the moulded plastic connectors.
The Colour module detects RGB colour, as well as ambient light level. It also has two bright white LEDs to illuminate objects whose colour is being detected.
The Dial module is... a dial! It has a rotary potentiometer and five bright white LEDs that illuminate as the dial is turned.
The Flotilla Dock is the heart of the Flotilla system. It talks, through serial USB, to all of the Flotilla modules connected to its eight ports. Connect it to your Raspberry Pi with a good quality USB A to micro B cable, and then connect your Flotilla modules to the eight ports with Flotilla cables.
The Joystick module is an analog joystick with a click button. It's ideal for using as a game controller, or to control a robot.
The Light module detects ambient light level. It's ideal for use in a weather station, keeping track of light levels in your greenhouse, or reminding you when you've left the lights on in your house.
The Matrix module is an 8x8 white LED matrix. It's perfect for scrolling text on, displaying simple animations like smiley faces, or using as a tiny marble maze.
Everything you'll need to build three different Cookbook recipes, including a super-cool weather station, or endless inventions with Rockpool.
This is the big one, the bee's knees, the bling king (or queen), the ultimate Flotilla kit!
The perfect little introduction to the world of Flotilla! Start your Flotilla journey here and then build your collection of modules later.
