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, 8×8 pixel art, persistence of vision effects, status indications, or just blasting colour into your surroundings. You need a good 2A power supply for your Pi for Unicorn HAT to work. Warning: RGB LEDs are bright enough to cause eye pain, do not look at them directly when brightly lit. We recommend the use of a diffuser. Compatibility (Audio): As the HAT uses the PWM hardware and GPIO18, it will interfere with analogue audio playback. HDMI should be just fine though! 😀 Compatibility (Model B): HATs are only compatible with the newer B+ Raspberry Pi. They will not fit nicely on a B. You can hack it to work with a Model B though. Compatibility (Pibow): While the Unicorn Hat works just fine with the Pibow Coupe unfortunately it will not fit in a Pibow Ninja, Rainbow or Timber at the current time. We’re working on it. Photo-sensitivity warning: Flashing, strobing, and patterns of lights may cause epileptic seizures. Always take care and immediately stop using if you feel unwell (dizziness, nausea, affected vision, eye twitching, disorientation).
