ZeroBorg - Overview

Written by in Build, ZeroBorg - Build on .

The ZeroBorg is our new add on board for controlling motors using the incredible $5 computer the Raspberry Pi Zero.
 


The ZeroBorg with a Pi Zero and battery

Its small size means it fits neatly below a Raspberry Pi Zero and opens up endless possibilities for tiny robot designs!
A Raspberry Pi Zero, ZeroBorg and a 9V battery weigh as little as 65g!

The ZeroBorg can control 4 motors independently and gives you whole new ways of moving your robots.
Take our Mecanum robot we built to test the board (see it in our ZeroBorg Kickstarter video).
Each wheel can be driven independently meaning you can go forwards, backwards, tank steer and strafe like a crab.
