In this tutorial I show you how to control a motor with your Raspberry Pi. By the end of this tutorial you will be able to control the direction of the motor, you will understand the basic principles of how that motor works and you will be able to decipher a simple Python program. Personally I think that controlling motors is one of the coolest things that you can do with the Pi and I truly hope that you enjoy this tutorial! Sorry for the long delay in between videos!

I am http://MikeLev.in — Congrats to anyone getting a Raspberry Pi for the holidays! Google: “pi noobs” for a better experience than was available a year ago when I made this video!
Spec’s: Broadcom SoC ARM11 (ARM v6) 700MHz with a game console caliber GPU
Yes, it runs Minecraft.
No, there’s no WiFi but you can get a $5 dongle.
No, it does not run Windows. Not even Win RT / Win 8 for ARM.
You can order them from element 14 or RS Components.
Correct, there’s no case but there are plenty of options.
No, it’s not as powerful as your PC but that’s not the point.
