Description of the BrickPi Core Kit for Lego Mindstorms and Raspberry Pi

Fans of Lego MINDSTORMS are now allowed to create robots that have a more powerful computer by using a Raspberry Pi. The BrickPi is an interface that, when connected to a Raspberry Pi, replaces the lego Mindstorms intelligent brick. The BrickPi has Lego connectors to Lego servomotors and Lego sensors. The BrickPi is a clever extension to the Raspberry Pi to use it into robotics.

The Raspberry Pi is a small computer with a Linux OS system and is much more powerful than a classique Lego Mindstorms brick. By using the Raspberry Pi, you'll be allowed to design more complex and efficient algorithms. Raspberry Pi is open-source for hardware and software and is clearly a success in the Do It Yourself community.
