Adafruit Raspberry Pi Sense HAT

Adafruit Raspberry Pi Sense HAT adds a variety of sensors to any Raspberry Pi with a 2x20 Connector. The sensors enable orientation, pressure, humidity, and temperature sensing. The Raspberry Pi Sense HAT includes an 8x8 LED matrix to display the data from the various sensors or can be programmed to play games like Tetris, Pong, and Snake with the onboard joystick. Writing programs for the Sense HAT is very simple, with a Python library available to get started quickly and easily.

The Adafruit Raspberry Pi Sense HAT is compatible with any and all Raspberry Pi SBCs with a 40-pin (2x20) connector, including the Raspberry Pi 4, Pi 33, Raspberry Pi 2, Model B+, and Model A+, but NOT the earlier 26-pin models of Raspberry Pi 1 Model B and A. Raspberry Pi not included.
