Raspberry Pi 3 Starter Kit
Our getting started guide shows you, in a really friendly and straightforward way, how to get everything set up in a jiffy. You'll learn how to protect your Pi from bumps and bruises in our Pibow case, how to add the heat sink, the microSD card, and the Blinkt! rainbow light. Learn how to code your twinkly Blinkt! using Python, and even make a (SQUEE!) rainbow animation with it.
We've worked with the Android Things team at Google to create this great add-on board that features displays, sensors, sound, and lots of LEDs! It's the perfect introduction to developing Android Things applications on the Raspberry Pi.
Rainbow HAT also has a full Python API for use on Raspbian just like all of our other HATs that you know and love!
Inspired by Alex Ellis' work with his Raspberry Pi Zero Docker Cluster, we developed these boards for him to use as status indicators. Blinkt! offers eight APA102 pixels in the smallest (and cheapest) form factor to plug straight onto your Raspberry Pi.Each pixel on Blinkt! is individually controllable and dimmable allowing you to create gradients, pulsing effects, or just flash them on and off like crazy. The data and clock lines are connected to GPIO #23 and #24 respectively but for simplicity you can just use our Python library to drive them.
