Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that a free version of Windows 10 would be available for Raspberry Pi devices. Now it’s here, and this $US75 kit aims to make the process of using it as straightforward as possible.
Microsoft has teamed up with Adafruit to create a kit that’s designed to “get you started quickly and easily on your path of learning either electronics or Windows 10 IoT Core and the Raspberry Pi 2.” The kit includes a set of sensors, electronic parts, wires and cables that all work with Windows 10 IoT Core, enabling you to fiddle around with hardware straight out of the box. There’s also an SD card that comes preloaded with Windows 10 IoT, along with instructions and sample code for some small projects to get started with.
You can buy the kit with a Raspberry Pi for $US115 or without for $US75.
