Arduino Vs Raspberry Pi - Microcontroller Vs Computer for maker projects

In this video I look at some of the features of the Arduino and the Raspberry Pi to see which is the best fit for your project.

Whilst it starts with the answer “it depends”, it gives scenarios where each is better and for those where either is a good fit I’ll give my own opinion of which is best.

I then explain about how you can get the best of both by combining a Raspberry Pi and Arduino and what the options are for communicating between the two.

This is really an introduction into a future video showing how both can be used together.
