XinaBox Raspberry Pi Extension Kit (XK03)


This kit helps Raspberry Pi lovers build sophisticated electronic devices in minutes. With XinaBox’s modular sensors for weather, hand gestures, proximity, acceleration/movement, volatile and organic gases, as well as capacitive touch, your Pi is transformed into an IoT hub, together with its own mini OLED display for local device monitoring.

XinaBox Raspberry Pi Extension Kit (XK03)

This kit helps Raspberry Pi lovers build sophisticated electronic devices in minutes. With XinaBox’s modular sensors for weather, hand gestures, proximity, acceleration/movement, volatile and organic gases, as well as capacitive touch, your Pi is transformed into an IoT hub, together with its own mini OLED display for local device monitoring. All of this is with no change to the way you code, no need to learn electronics, solder or breadboard. xChips are robust, so you can reuse and prototype countless devices.

The STEM Raspberry Pi Kit consist of the following:
1 x BR01 – Raspberry Pi Bridge
1 x OD01 – OLED Display 128×64 (SSD1306)
1 x SG33 – VOC and eCO2 Sensor (CCS811)
1 x SH01 – Capacitive Touch (CAP1296)
1 x SI02 – IMU 6DoF (MAG3110 & MMA8653fc)
1 x SL06 – Gesture Sensor(APDS-9960)
1 x SW01 – Advanced Weather Sensor (BME280)
1 x XC10 – 10-Pack xBUS Connectors

How it works

XinaBox BR01 is the hardware bridge that connects xChips with your Raspberry Pi (abbreviated to RasPi or RPi). The bridge simply extends the I2C and UART bus, and 3.3volt power to the xChips connected. xChips communicate using I2C, so you need to activate that bus by running “Raspberry Pi Configuration” from the “Preferences” menu. This is accessible from the default NOOBS/Raspbian menu or by typing “sudo raspi-config” in the terminal. Once the bus is activated, you can type “i2cdetect -y 1″to scan which xChips are connected. Please see here for more on connecting your RasPi with XinaBox, libraries, and our simple Hackster project creating a weather station with 5 lines of Python code.

Note for Raspberry Pi Zero users, you can use the BR03 Raspberry Pi Zero Bridge instead of the BR01 Raspberry Pi Bridge.

Some ideas to get you started:

  • Build a weather station in less than 5 minutes (see Raspberry Pi Weather Station to get you started)
  • First using only your RasPi, BR01, SW01 and a single XC10 connector. Adding an MD01 Spacer xChip allows you to move the sensor further away from the RasPi CPU, and the heat that generates. The SW01 measures temperature, humidity and pressure, from which altitude, cloud base can also be estimated.
  • Next, you can add the OD01 mini-OLED display to show the Bosch sensor’s output on the device and then the SH01 as a mini keyboard, and you have yourself a unit with input and output not exceeding the size of the RasPi. You could log temperature data to the cloud on the press of a button, or change the displayed data using the same mini-keyboard
  • Add xChip SG33 to your weather station to get sophisticated air quality readings, which could be used to control ventilation, heating and emergency warnings.
  • Revisit your childhood and play the classic Space Invaders game on your Pi mini OLED display, together with the mini keyboard
  • Create an amazing Servo Controlled Time-Lapse Camera which records images on your untethered device for later retrieval – we’ve used this in amazing balloon missions!
  • Show live video from your Pi camera on our mini-OLED display
  • Control apps on your Pi using hand gestures. The SL06 Gesture Sensor Recognises hand gestures including up/down and left/right swipes, as well as your hand’s proximity, allowing you to create a control interface for your Pi software.
  • Create an M&Ms sorter, using the SL06 Gesture sensor to identify M&M color, and the servo to steer M&Ms into colour coded piles
  • Make a tracker with the SI02 to show how smooth your driving is! The mini OLED can also display live data on how much you accelerate, brake and take sharp turns
  • Or make a mobile tracker to measure how much G-force and shocks you take on your bike at the weekend. How fast can you accelerate (or brake)?

Product Manuals

If applicable, the Product Documentation, Reference Materials, CAD design(s),.STEP file(s) and/or other drawing files, Manuals, and Tutorials will be available for download upon purchase. The order confirmation email will include a downloadable link to the product file(s), which can also be downloaded from the My Account section if needed.

We currently produce a range of 63 modular “xChips”, which include cores/CPUs, sensors, power, communication, output, and storage using a connectivity standard without wires, soldering, breadboards or hardware knowledge. Also, instead of requiring the use of specific Single Board Computers (SBCs) or Micro Controller Units (MCUs), we offer flexibility to use industry standard cores, clones, or bridges to Raspberry Pi (including the Zero), Arduino, Beagleboard, Dragonboard, Minnowboard and even Micro:bit (more for education). We facilitate easy connectivity to cloud providers like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and are compatible with programming in almost any language, from Javascript, C, C++ and Python, to Mongoose-OS, NodeMCU and RTOS. We expect to increase our range to c. 200 xChips by Q4 2018.

Shipping Policy

WE SHIP WORLDWIDE: We primarily ship via FedEx, UPS, DHL, and USPS because they are fast, reliable, and easily trackable. We usually ship within two to three business days after the full payment is received. Standard delivery generally occurs within 5 to 7 business days after the shipping date. However, sometimes delivery may take about 7 to 10 business days, depending on the shipping destination, logistics mode, weather conditions, product weight, size, or shipping company distribution structures based on re-planning, such as staff shortages caused by COVID.

SHIPPING COSTS: For some industrial products, e.g., heavy wheels, CNC machines, etc., the shipping cost is calculated based on the product weight, not quantity. To benefit from lower shipping costs for orders with multiple items, please contact us at Our shipping rates are listed very clearly on each product page under the SHIPPING tab. Additionally, to see the shipping cost for your country, add the item to the Shopping Cart, there you will see the shipping cost based on your Country and Location.
