Hooking up Arduino gear to a Rasperry Pi has been a topic on many maker and hobbyists minds since the Raspberry Pi was released. While there are hacks and even special boards like the GertDuino to solve the problem, there’s not been an easy way to get Arduino shields hooked up to the Pi.
This is where the Arduberry comes in, a board that fits over the GPIO ports and allows the addition of Arduino shields. Simple.
We spoke to John Cole from Dexter Industries, the company behind the Arduberry about the response to the Kickstarter:
“It’s been good. We’ve got something like five hundred and some backers already. That’s great; it was originally going to be a side project and we really wanted to get 100 so that we could have that critical mass to send off and do the tooling and PCBs. So this has been really unexpected, but fantastic.”
There’s just over two days left to get in on it. It may have already passed its goal, but that also means you’re guaranteed one.
