This early prototype is the first board I develop from ground up. The first shot was made by Tom Hartley, Alyssa Dayan and Taylor Jones a few years back, when they developed their AirPi. Unfortunately, the AirPi is not supported anymore and many of its parts are outdated.
With the Prototype Bee I created a significantly smaller board, which can be installed on top of a Raspberry Pi Zero. Unlike its idol, the AirPi, the bee includes pre-soldered SMT parts and therefore requires less soldering abilities from the user.
It is meant to be a plug-and-play solution with minimal effort necessary. However, due to limited free time to spend for further development, it is necessary for the user to dive a little into the basics of electronics and coding.
