IDEA! Website similar for pinout.xyz

Mostly people who work with Raspberry Pi board know about this site – pinout.xyz, which describe pinout and all pin’s functions of this single-board computer.

What if we will be able to have similar webpage, but with pinouts for all popular microcontroller platforms and boards. All you need is a click to the needed pin and read description or select necessery interface and highlight all avalaible pins at connector.

In modern world, when globalization is everything, good idea to have global open knowledge base for numerous platforms and devices which used by the people around the world for different hobby projects.

Some design concept

Rhoby is a companion robot which designed to interact with people for the purpose of teaching them new skills in the fields of exact sciences, philology, etc.

Rhoby has a two arms, one for the pencil, second for the “tablet” – LCD which displays a status of teaching assignment.

Head of the robot consist of OLED-display for eyes animation – one of the methods emotional communication with human, plus on the “face” is placed a speaker for verbal communication. On top of the head two antennas which actually is a microphones for hearing and determining the direction of the sound source.
