I recently purchased a new add-on for Raspberry. With a successful advertisement of sending the Sense HAT to Internation Space Station, now the widget is ready for purchase: link, online shopping, french store.
To begin with the little board, all you have to do is to run the following command in order to install the driver:
sudo apt-get update
A reboot of the raspberry will give you access to the board.
Cannot get sense-hat installed
This problem seems to be related to the operating system. I have
HypriotOS installed, and the os repository does not provide
sense-hat, so I reinstall the original image of
Still not working
Make sure you have reboot your raspberry. Once the Sense HAT shows no LED after reboot, this means it is sucessfully installed.
Make sure you have enabled I2C by
sudo raspi-config, select
8. Advanced Options - I2C - Enable
With provided example, you can already play with the sense HAT.
Here is a quick start with
from sense_hat import SenseHat # import sense_hat object
So I make a deeper step, by showing a heart in order to convience my GF (lol) for the purchase:
from sense_hat import SenseHat
