If you count yourself among the third of the global population currently on lockdown, then you know how difficult it can be to maintain a positive outlook when life has been turned upside down. It's easy to forget just how big of an impact having fun and being productive has on our mental health. As such, now just may be the right time to invest in tools and learning that can help you take care of both at the same time. The SunFounder PiCar-V Kit V2.0 for Raspberry Pi 4 is an engaging way to re-inject some fun into life at home, and it's on sale for just $104.95. That's 8% off the normal price of $115.

The PiCar-V is an open-source robot learning kit and the perfect choice for beginners to learn Raspberry Pi, robotics, electronics, and programming. Taking four to five hours to complete, the kit comes with everything you need right out of the box, from PCB to jump wires and the titular webcam, so it's easy to get started on this DIY project from home. On top of that, the robot car is equipped with an anti-reverse interface, so assembling it is even more convenient.

Plus, once completed, you get to play around with three different sensor modules when driving the car, including ultrasonic obstacle avoidance, light follower, and line follower. Meaning, no matter how you or your child choose to control the car — convenient options include a PC, mobile phone, or tablet — it's possible to optimize the car's controls with easy visual programming or Python code so it drives better for your home's unique environment. So, completing and driving the PiCar-V is a productive way to spend time at home while having fun, letting you enjoy the tangible results of your hard work and learn at every stage of the process.
