The Pimoroni Blinkt! is a “shield” for the Raspberry Pi, equipped with eight super-bright and addressable RGB LEDs that make it ideal for adding visual notifications to your Pi. Each LED is individually controllable and dimmable, allowing you to create gradients, pulsing effects, or just flash them on and off like crazy.

Each Pimoroni Blinkt! easily snaps on top of a Raspberry Pi equipped with a 40-pin (2x20) GPIO. Pimoroni has created a GitHub repository bundling the Blinkt! software with a set of examples to get you started in an easy-to-use Python module, so all you have to worry about is setting the color you want each pixel to be.

Note: Be careful to plug in your Blinkt! the correct way; it has curves on the top that match the corners of any Raspberry Pi.

Features:

  • Eight RGB LED (APA102)
  • Individually controllable pixels
  • Sits directly on top of your Pi in a tiny footprint
  • Fits inside most Pi cases
  • Comes fully assembled

  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

    The Pimoroni crew have made this board a breeze to setup and use. The leds cover a good colour and brightness range. If you intend to use this in low light or darkness you may want to look into disabling the Pi's onboard leds which I believe is possible on all current models (but check for yourself).

    All the products in this order were received in excellent condition and were exactly as advertised. The service and delivery were remarkably prompt (even to the most remote capital city in the world!)
    Core Electronics is now my priority source for electronic treasures such as these. Good work Guys

    Super LEDs with lots of potential. They are super bright (maybe a little too bright - and I'm considering options to diffuse them...), and super easy to work with. I was lighting them up within minutes of connecting them to my RPi! (Posted on 23/01/2017)
