Fun, educational self-build kit

Two part construction, self build kit is easy to assemble with minimal soldering required. POCO® is crammed to the max with high technology that can be shoe horned inside its compact body. Learn how a micro computer works on the inside and outside - simple video assembly instructions available online.

Make a mini Gaming console

Download a free emulator such as RetroPie to turn the POCO® into a retro gaming machine which can emulate 50 classic game consoles with thousands of games available. Alternatively play native games such as Minecraft® (ideal for school clubs). Programmable gaming controls including tactile analogue joysticks and multiple push buttons, allow infinite possibilities.

Make an ultra thin music player

Download a free music player such as RuneAudio which can play sound via POCO®'s built in speaker or 3.5mm jack socket (accepts standard ear bud headphones). Store music on microSD cards.

Make a compact, full HD video camera

Use pre-installed Picamera software with POCO®'s supplied 8MP flex camera module to create an action cam, car dash cam, bike cam and wearable time lapse cam. Playback video and photo content on POCO®'s built-in 2.8" screen or instead plug into an HDTV using POCO®'s HDMI. 

Teach yourself coding

Use command line input or instead use free programmes such as Scratch - a visual programming tool with a drag-and-drop interface that allows the user to create animations, games and stories to share with others around the world.

Hackable - easy to modify

Download free software and get hardware ideas from the vast Raspberry Pi® blog resource and learn to tinker on the go. What can you turn POCO® into? Maker examples here.
