If you're interested in turning the Raspberry PI Zero into a hero(Robot) Check out this course http://www.thegreatcourses.com/courses/robotics.html
By thinking like an engineer you can create a raspberry pi.

I got the PI model B, B+ and PI 2 model B.
When will I get the A? I don't know.

Cool story, bro'. :lol: Great course on "ROBOTICS"!
You didn't actually watch the lectures in that course, though, did you?
It was a great course on Robotics!
What did you learn from watching and listening to all the lectures?

It's worth the money because it is a great course on Robotics!
You didn't find the engineering work a bit too simplistic?

For $270 dollars I would expect more technical detail:

For a 24-lecture course in this price range I expected more sophisticated content. The course is so basic that I found myself going fast forward most of the time, and even skipping to the next lecture hoping to find more challenging content. I am returning this course for a refund.
Unless this topic is completely new to you and you have no technical background whatsoever, I do not recommend this course. "
JJDyn wrote:I have to agree with Herry. This course barely scratched the surface of an exciting field, and came across more as a Discovery Channel program about a man and his toys. And for an introduction, that may be fine and what you're looking for. I was looking for something more in depth with practical applications. I've purchased about 15 courses here so far; this was the first one I returned.

I got a free month trial from https://www.thegreatcoursesplus.com/ And from a person who doesn't know much on Robotics, I can say that it was a great course on Robotics!
