I’ve been dabbling previously with a Raspberry Pi single-board computer, and amazed on how this tiny computer can do so many things. You can add sensors like temperature sensor to monitor the environment and record this in a file where you can review its data. Or, you can attach a servo so you can turn on the light switch by Tweeting a command online, anywhere!
The only problem is it is a mini desktop and you need to plug it in an electrical outlet. Therefore, portability is a problem.
An idea just switched on me since Raspberry Pi is an Internet Of Things computer, why not create a laptop that has IO board you can attach to a USB port or Thunderbolt ports, and you can now use this laptop just like a Raspberry Pi!
This is super useful for students and teachers alike, and it would be great to do so much more and even save the world!
