Check out our Arcade section, whether you just want a retro control or a mini DIY arcade cabinet we have what you're looking for.
Did somebody say Robotics?
We've got some cool beginner's items in our robotic section
Our Kits come with the latest version of NOOBS – New Out Of the Box Software pre-installed, While we will certainly try our best to assist with any software related questions we cannot offer any kind of official support on community driven, open source, or non-PiShop produced proprietary software.
NOOBS, Raspbian, LibreELEC and OSMC are all open-source software, please visit the developer's respective websites for more info.
So what is NOOBS anyway?In Short, NOOBS is an installer, when you switch your RPI on NOOBS will guide you through the installation of your software of choice... seem confusing? Don't worry it really couldn't be easier
- Raspbian - a full desktop for normal day to day work. Email, internet, office suite, programming etc.
- LibreELEC RPi2 - our preferred version of Kodi for use as a media centre.
- OSMC Pi2 - for more control of your Kodi media centre
- Windows 10 IoT Core- nope this is not windows 10. It simply enables you to run projects and apps for the IOT environment.
- Lakka and Recalbox- retro gaming for the RPi.

Turn your Raspberry Pi into a retro games console! Picade HAT includes joystick and button inputs, a 3W I2S DAC/amplifier, and soft power switch. Nice!
We've taken all the great features of the Picade PCB and crammed them onto this super HAT. Simply plug it onto top of your Pi, wire up your controls, and install our driver! It's ideal for your own custom arcade builds or interfaces that need big colourful buttons and sound.
- I2S audio DAC with 3W amplifier (mono) + speaker
- Safe power on/off system
- 4-way digital joystick inputs
- 6 x game button inputs
- 4 x utility button inputs
- 1 x soft power switch input
- Breakout pins for other GPIO features
The I2S DAC blends both channels of digital audio from the Raspberry Pi into a single mono output. This is then passed through a 3W amplifier to power any connected speaker.
The board also features a soft power switch that allows you turn your Pi on and off safely without risk of SD card corruption. Simply tap the connected button to start up then tap it again to fully shutdown and disconnect power.

NANO Shield Expansion Board Description:
This Nano Mult-Function expansion board is designed specially for Arduino Nano, solving the problem of confusing wiring when a variety of sensors connected.
Lead out all digital IO port and analog IO port, each one with standard positive and negative power interface.
Lead out the I2C interface of mainboard for convenient connection.
Increasing the DC power supply interface. Nano USB interface supply current is actually only 50MA, to bring high-current devices, such as the steering, is obviously insufficient. So in the DC power connector provide external power supply to ensure the stability of equipment operation.
