    What is the main differences between what Raspberry Pi does and what Arduino does?

    In short, Raspberry Pi has a more powerful processor that runs Linux. Arduino uses a simple microcontroller that is programmed in C or Assembly. Similar in principle, but they have different capabilities and applications.

    In simple words,
    Arduino ~ Nokia 3310
    Raspberry pi ~ nokia lumia 1020
    :)

    IMO, arduino is easier to use from the get go. The language and setup are simple.
    However, if you can code in python, the pi is more powerful.
    For most imbedded projects, the arduino is plenty.

    For most projects you don't even need an arduino, just an AVR and maybe a crystal.

    They really fooled you didn't they?

    That's C++ you're coding in. The setup might be simple, and the examples may be simply coded, but don't let that fool you. If you start looking at other people's library routines you'll find out real fast.

    Could you use both Arduino and Raspberry Pi on the same project? Could they work together?

    arduino is better at external hardware, buttons, leds, integrating with permanent solutions

    raspberry pi is better for coding with, plus you can see what you are doing.
