Lego compatible add-on pieces

Just a quick post today, but something seems to be happening in the Plastic Construction brick and Raspberry Pi world!

Within a space of two days, I received information about these two:

  • Micrometal gear motor to Lego axle Adaptor which allows geared 6v motors to connect to Lego axles and wheels. I can see that this is going to result in a lot more Lego being automated by Raspberry Pi computers.
  • The PiBlox case for the Raspberry Pi is the second surprise. This is, apparently, a Lego compatible Raspberry Pi case. It features slots in all of the right places. including space for a camera mount.

I can see that I’m going to have to get some! It would be interesting to see if a battery pack, motor driver and servo buffer could be fitted into a second PiBlox case allowing for an all-in-one design.

  1. Wonderful news… the release of the PiZero. With this, I think I can fit a Raspberry Pi, miniature WiFi dongle, Battery, Charger and pHAT motor driver and other things into the PiBlox case.

    Just need to get the PiZero now…
