Version 1

    It's all about function...isn't it?

    Without doubt, Raspberry Pi is inspiring generations from the space generation currently eclipsed by Tim Peake story, countless world governments promoting better computing, design and technology, mathematics, and science in schools or industrial markets launching exploration programs in automation, IoT and more. Few could have predicted how well these lovely little Raspberry Pi boards would expand and be embraced by so many to do so much.

    In honour of this, we've taken some time out to list the best accessories to optimise the capability of your Raspberry Pi board - whether you are just starting out in control and monitoring and want to build some basic functionality - taking pictures and video, displaying these and connecting it up with other devices; or maybe you would like to step it up a level to embed microcontrollers and to exploit the fortunes of Microstack technologies to integrate navigation, tracking and gaming in to your system. Obviously we don't want to pigeon hole accessories in to basic/intermediate/expert arbitrarily, but these lists should give you some insight in to how you can further unlock the potential of your Raspberry Pi depending where you already are as a user/maker, etc.

    For the more adventurous among you, you may want to embark on building your own little super computer connecting a GertDuino or GertBoard. Who knows where your voyage of discovery will take you!
