Low cost add-on board lets Pi Zero do robotics

Filed under
Linux has Kickstarter-funded a “ZeroBorg” 4-motor robotics motor controller and sensor board designed to work with the Raspberry Pi Zero.

The Raspberry Pi has been widely used in Linux robotics projects with the help of controller boards and kits such as the CoroBot Spark, Roboteq RIO, RoboPi, and PinBall. So it was only a matter of time before robot makers jumped on the $5 and up Raspberry Pi Zero, which measures only 65 x 30mm and weighs just 23 grams. UK-based PiBorg,org, which has launched Pi-based robotics kits such as the 6-motor DiddyBorg and smaller 4Borg, has tapped the Zero for its new ZeroBorg controller. It’s not a full robot kit like the DiddyBorg or 4Borg, but a robotics motor controller and sensor board designed to fit snugly with the Zero.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
