10 August 2016

We’re delighted to announce the release of a web-based emulator for the Sense HAT!

The Sense HAT is the multipurpose add-on board for the Raspberry Pi, which is also the core component of the Astro Pi units on the International Space Station. The Raspberry Pi Foundation have joined forces and entered a new, exciting partnership with Trinket, a US-based startup. We have been working with Trinket so that we could provide a unique, free learning resource that brings the excitement of programming our space-qualified hardware to students, teachers, and others all over the world.

The emulator will allow more people to participate in future Astro Pi competitions, as you’ll no longer need to have your your own Raspberry Pi computer or Sense HAT.
