Formula Pi, a project that transforms your Raspberry Pi into a racing vehicle

Formula Pi

Not only Arduino has projects related to games and entertainment. Also Raspberry Pi has the same projects and I do not mean old video games, but real toys like racing cars.

This is a simple thing to do but it is not so easy to create a racing league with these creations. That is why Formula Pi was born. Formula Pi is a Crowdfunding project looking for money to create a winter league with racing cars created by the Piborg team. Both projects are based on Raspberry Pi and need money to run.

The Formula Pi track offers safety add-ons for race cars

Many of you will think that a race track should not be so expensive and it is true, but the Formula Pi track is special. Thanks to Raspberry Pi and Free Hardware you can make cars not collide with other cars nor that they crash against the walls of the track, making the cars created have more life than normal. In addition, they want to do not only leagues in winter but also leagues in summer, giving more functions to the track.

La crowdfunding campaign It is being quite successful and attracting the attention of many, including the official Raspberry Pi website that has picked up this project from the PiBorg team. Anyone can participate and for only 35 pounds Not only do we contribute a little to this project, but you will also get a racing car with Raspberry Pi and you can participate in this curious league or simply make it run on any other track.

I personally find it interesting. The usual thing is to see similar projects that are carried out with Arduino or with a 3D printer, but few are those related to Raspberry Pi and how you can see it, they are as interesting as the last ones Do not you think?
