Program the Sense HAT

If you are lucky enough to own a Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT – the hardware that’s going to be aboard the International Space Station until 2022 – then you can run experiments of your own, make games, and more.

The Sense HAT gives additional functionality to the Raspberry Pi, such as its pixel display and collection of sensors. It has the following features:

  • Gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensor
  • Temperature and humidity sensor
  • Barometric pressure sensor
  • 8×8 RGB LED display
  • Mini joystick

A Scratch interface and a Python library have been provided to provide easy access to the LED display and the sensors.
