Have a go at some physical computing projects

One the most exciting features of pi-top is the ability to do physical computing.

Physical computing involves attaching components to a computer and writing code in order to make things move, light up, make sounds or interact with a button. Students are free to use their imagination to create their own physical computer projects and take ownership of their learning - the possibilities of physical computing are endless. Take a look at pi-topCODER and get inspired to try out some physical computing projects, such as creating traffic lights or a quick-reaction game. Explore the variety of add-ons available for Raspberry Pi and find ideas for further projects on raspberrypi.orgMagpi Magazine and Hello World, magazines written especially for computer science teachers, are also great sources of inspiration.
