This means, theoretically, the latest you can order from us and still receive your Raspberry Pi before Christmas is Noon on Thursday the 22nd of December. You are, however, placing a lot of faith in Australia Post’s express post guarantee, we’ll do our best to make sure you get everything in time before Christmas, but there are things we cannot control.
If you are still looking for a last minute Christmas gift, here are some ideas to get you started:
The current Raspberry Pi 3 is much faster than its predecessor, has inbuilt WiFi and is perfect as a Media Centre (to pay Movies etc. on your TV), First computer for learning, or even for playing retro console games or minecraft.
We have specialist packages for children and adults alike. Our GoPiGo starter kit is a fully functioning robotic car with options for ultrasonic distance sensors, line followers, and a camera. You can build a completely open-source tablet with our multi-touch 7” screen and case package, or our older kids (or kids at heart) can use our PiFace Digital and PiFace Control and Display packages as the platform for complex electronics projects (People have used them for sprinkler systems, gate and garage door opener systems, Spotify and Pandora radio etc.)
The FLIRC IR Receiver allows you to use any existing remote control to control almost any program on any device. It is incredibly popular and especially useful if you’ve upgrade your Home Theatre PC from a Raspberry Pi to a full PC and are currently using a wireless keyboard. (FLIRC have just released a new version, which you can read about here.)
Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t have sneaky credit card fees at the checkout, and when we say it’s “In Stock” we mean it’s here in our warehouse in Australia, ready to put into an express parcel and send to you right away.
