I've got a Pi and I'm going to use it..

If that's you, i.e. you have a Raspberry Pi and you want to use it for some hardware stuff, you may be interested to know that the Raspberry Pi Gertboard - Assembled and Raspberry Pi Piface Digital are both available on Amazon for less than £12.50 at the moment.

The Piface is smaller and has two relays, but the Gertboard is more flexible and generally more powerful, including having its own CPU. The Piface is normally around £25 and the Gertboard about £32, so the current price is very good.

Update: Oh, I see the same vendor is also selling the Raspberry Pi Pi-Face Control and Display Plug for the same price - this gives the Pi a small character display plus some buttons for inputs. I've used something similar for Arduinos...
