The Raspberry Pi Sense HAT is attached on top of the Raspberry Pi via the 40 GPIO pins. The Sense HAT has several integrated circuit based sensors that can be used for many different types of experiments, applications, and even games.
What's on-board the Pi Sense HAT?
•8 x 8, 16-bit LED display that outputs sense data via shapes, icons and messages
•Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) — essential for velocity, orientation and gravity measurement of a space craft, the IMU combines an accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer into one chip
•Barometric air pressure sensor
•5-button joystick that serves as an on-board keyboard and mouse
How do I get started with the Pi Sense HAT?
Once the HAT is assembled with your Pi board, you will need to install Astro Pi software. You can now start to program — the Raspberry Pi Foundation provide great examples to start programming with such as showing a rainbow of colours on the LED display or rotating the LED display.
Note: You will need eight M2.5 screws and four hexagonal standoffs to attach the HAT to your Pi.
