We’re having a Pi Day sale, and it starts tonight!

via Pololu Blog

Pi Day is nearly upon us, and to celebrate, we are discounting a variety of exciting products that can be loosely associated with “Pi”. The sale starts tonight at 8:36 PM PDT and runs through the end of the 15th. And in case you are wondering about the strange start time, that makes the sale 3.14159 days long in yet another tribute to this wonderful irrational number (if it bothers you that 3.14159 is not irrational, you can pretend that the sale lasts exactly π days).

Check out the sale page for more information (and check out for more information on Pi Day)!

As we posted a few weeks ago, Texas Instruments recently announced that they were launching a new curriculum designed for university students and based upon our Romi robot platform.

Today, element14 announced pre-order sales of the three kit options. We hear interest has been very strong, so make sure to reserve yours right away if you want to get one from the initial production run. If you do get one, let us know what you think of it!
