Let's be honest with ourselves: At least once, we've all considered how much easier life would be if we had a handy robot by our side.

Of course, with most of us lacking the technical know-how, this thought remains a fantasy, and we're stuck here sans helpful automatons.

However, with the arrival of Raspberry Pi, building and programming your own robots, wearables, and other electronic devices isn't nearly as tough as you'd think. The Raspberry Pi Mastery Bundle can show you how, and it's on sale for US$34.

For those out of the loop, Raspberry Pi is a tiny, credit card-sized microcomputer that's capable of doing just about everything a desktop can do while allowing its users to explore computing and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.

Additionally, Raspberry Pi is capable of interacting with Internet of Things (IoT) devices, letting users create a host of DIY electronics projects, like music makers, cameras, and, of course, robots.

This collection features eight courses designed to get you up and running with this intuitive platform and start creating own DIY electronics.

Beginning with the essentials, you'll learn how to use Raspberry Pi as a computer, writing a Python program to create a simple number guessing game.

Then, you'll refine your skills and move on to more challenging projects, like using Python to create a light detector and building a motion sensor-based teddy bear that laughs when you wave your hand.

Whether you're a complete coding novice or a seasoned developer, the Raspberry Pi Mastery Bundle can help you broaden your technical understanding with its eight courses, and it's on sale for a limited time.

This collection boasts more than US$800 worth of training, but you can get it on sale today for US$34, saving more than 90 percent off its usual price.
