Monkey PI

Our aim is to provide a cheap personal computer for kids, that also allows to take the first steps into electronics.
This is why we're building Monkey PI, a monkey shaped 11 inch Raspberry 2 powered PC. The Monkey's tail contains LEDs, a buzzer, a potentiometer and some sensors attached to the raspberry gpio pins, and a small breadboard ready for experiment.
A possible development is to attract sponsors to make this machine available in schools and community centers, possibly produced locally by fablabs.
This will be one of the pilot projects of the "Made in a FabLab" initiative organized by Fab Economy, focused on creating globally designed / locally produced products.
