Carduino FAQ’s

Is that a Raspberry Pi?

No. The brains of the Carduino is a microcontroller called the ‘Arduino’. It is an italian designed board, which is programmable, so that every time you turn it on it does what it was programmed to do. A Raspberry Pi, by contrast, is a mini computer more like a laptop or desktop, which boots up into an operating system when it starts.

So will the Carduino work with the Raspberry Pi?

This is definitely part of our roadmap. There are a number of advantages and disadvantages to both Arduino and the Raspberry Pi and we’re looking at the best ways to go build our projects to teach programming and electronics in the best possible way.
