Let’s be honest. When we decided to submit a team for Pi Wars 2018 we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into. “Designing and building a robot? That should be fun” we all thought. After over 6 months of work, countless meetings, several weekends at the office building and testing roboTOP, two […]
We have some amazing news! Our operating system, pi-topOS Polaris, is now built on the new and exciting latest release of Raspbian/Debian “Stretch”.

We are on a mission to bring the power of physical computing to the world of education and help educators from all around the world bring science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics to life.

With a limited number of free spaces still available, pi-top’s hands-on STEAM workshops at Bett 2018 are designed and run by our in-house educationalists. We are on the precipice of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, characterised by artificial intelligence, automation, self-driving vehicles, ubiquitous mobile super-computing and so forth. These advances will create new and unexpected employment opportunities […]
When we started our robot plan way back in September, it all seemed fairly straightforward: We build a robot, we write some code, we modify it to suit the challenges and ‘Bob’s your uncle’. Turns out, things are never that easy – the first thing we had to decide on was how independent did we […]
Here at pi-top, we love getting involved with the Raspberry Pi community and taking part in events so when the opportunity to enter PiWars 2018 came around, we couldn’t resist submitting a team. With a range of skills, talents and opinions, the pi-top team spent several weeks… only to decide on a name for our robot, […]
It has been a pretty busy year so far here at pi-top: from winning Edtech Start Up Company of the Year at the BETT awards to attending ISTE, passing by welcoming a new accessory to our product family, pi-topPULSE. At the same time, during these months, we’ve been working on a (*super secret*) project and […]

It has full Amazon Alexa integration, the cloud-based voice service!
