Raspberry Pi Sense HAT - AstroPi

Raspberry Pi Sense HAT - AstroPi

Possibilities include: Determining orientation
Detecting speed
Measure environmental conditions (temperature and humidity.)
The bright 8 x 8 RGB LED display can be used to display sensor data or games. An on-board directional joystick provides a human interface for navigation and input.
Compatible with Raspberry Pi B+, A+, and Pi 2

Product Description
The Raspberry Pi Sense HAT attaches via the Pi's 40pin GPIO port to read and display sensor data from a host of built-in sensors. Based on the same hardware that is currently in orbit on the International Space Station, the Sense HAT lets you create applications, experiments, and games.

Technical Specifications:
Gyroscope - angular rate sensor: +/-245/500/2000dps
Accelerometer - Linear acceleration sensor: +/-2/4/8/16 g
Magnetometer - Magnetic Sensor: +/- 4/8/12/16
Gauss Barometer: 260 - 1260 hPa absolute range (accuracy depends on the temperature and pressure, +/- 0.1 hPa under normal conditions)
Temperature sensor (Temperature accurate to +/- 2 degC in the 0-65 degC range)
Relative Humidity sensor (accurate to +/- 4.5% in the 20-80%rH range, accurate to +/- 0.5 degC in 15-40 degC range)
8x8 RGB LED matrix display
Small 5 button joystick
Compatible with Raspberry Pi B+, A+, and Pi 2

ASTRO PI The Raspberry Pi Sense HAT is being used in conjunction with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to perform science experiments aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
