Raspberry Pi: Essential add-ons for modders and everyday users @ TechRepublic.

TechRepublic has covered some pretty nifty hacks for the Raspberry Pi, the $40 credit card-sized Linux computer.

To help you on your way TechRepublic has rounded-up the ultimate collection of add-ons for the Pi, from boards for controlling robots to keyboards and screens that let you use it on the move.

This round-up assumes you already have the basics – the power cables, memory card, basic keyboad and mouse and video leads – you need to get going with the Pi.
Note a lot of these accessories have been built by individuals or small teams, so expect a bit of a wait to receive them.
