Portable Experimenter’s Platform, Powered by Raspberry Pi
A game-changing booster for STEM education, ultra low-cost data acquisition system, and Audio
Explorer for experimentation in sound form the beginning configuration of the Portable
Experimenter's Platform. It works with any networked computing device with a browser. Hobbyists
in electronics and students can perform experiments in sound or voice, as well as learning
computing in Linux and Python.
Sunnyvale, CA, March 23, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Wattminder, Inc. dba: WattminderInstruments.com has
announced a KickStarter project -- Portable Experimenter's Platform (PEP) a powerful yet low-cost
electronic instrumentation laboratory bench for hobbyists and students in electronics, as well as physical
sensors about our surroundings, i.e. temperature, sound, pressure, light intensity, etc. for simple
experimentation in Physics.
The Raspberry Pi, and its user can interact with his or her surrounding, or object of experimentation
involving measurable or detectable attributes. Current offerings include Ras-Das-1, Audio Explorer, and
an Acrylic case, each retailing at $35. Customer and classroom testing are in progress.
Ras-Das-3 and Optical Explorer boards are in prototyping stage, demonstration units will be tested
starting late March, 2013.
Key innovations in this PEP are:
1. Professional features at a hobbyist price
2. Virtual (oscilloscope) Scope capability operated with common browser, through a LAN, or internet
3. Enable in-class, or at-home hands-on experimentation for Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics (STEM) and electronics & Linux computing
A Kickstarter project (a crowd sourced funding mechanism) is in progress. A production contract is in
place, and ready to go as soon as funding is secured.
