You’ve heard of a sunhat right?
Well that may be fine for the tardy photon-stream emanating from our favourite star, Sol, but what’s going to protect your beloved B+ Pi from an onslaught of rainbow-coloured fusion? That’s right, it’s the Unicorn HAT.
Sporting a matrix of 64 (8 x 8) RGB LEDs and powered directly from the Pi this is the most compact pocket aurora available.
Unicorn HAT provides a wash of controllable colour that is ideal for mood-lighting, 8x8 pixel art, persistence of vision effects, status indications, or just blasting colour into your surroundings.
- 64 RGB LEDs (WS2812B)
- Python API
- Compatible with Raspberry Pi B+
- EEPROM with Raspberry Pi HAT configuration details
- LED data driven via DMA over PWM
- You need a good 2A power supply for your Pi for Unicorn HAT to work.
