what is the rapidradio?
Isn’t it just beauty?
No, it’s not.
It is beauty and it works!
How cool is that?
rapidradio means the simplest wireless connectivity for your Raspberry Pi.
It’s a half-duplex 2.4GHz transceiver based on the RFM75 module (made by HopeRF). It’s a perfect solution for any kind of home automation, robotics, DIY projects, Arduino-to-Raspberry Pi projects etc.
You will be surprised how much you can reach using rapidradio. So much opportunities and so much fun, because it will work for you both ways – for your projects and for your taste. Enjoy!
