Adafruit's Pimoroni pals have curated a beautifully modern Mood Light Kit that'll look great on your bedside table, bookcase, or desk. It's even internet-connected!

This kit has just-about-everything you'll need: Pimoroni's  Unicorn pHAT board with 32 programmable RGB Neopixel LEDs, diffuser, power adapter, and a beautifully acrylic enclosure to make it look like a lamps. It even includes a Pi Zero W. All you need is to  add your own micro-SD card and USB power supply. It'll take you around 30 minutes to assemble everything (check out Pimoroni's assembly guide for details).

Set it to a single color, have it fade through all the colors of the rainbow, or harness the built-in wireless LAN on the Pi Zero W.

Kit includes:

  • Pi Zero W
  • Unicorn pHAT with 32 programmable RGB Neopixel LEDs
  • Male and female 2x20 pin headers
  • White and yellow pendant light stand and diffuser
  • 50cm USB A to micro-B cable
  • USB A (female) to USB OTG adapter
  • Mini to full-size HDMI adapter
  • Sticker sheet (personalize your Mood Light!)
  • Comes in a reusable kit box

Mood Light uses the popular Unicorn pHAT board, with 32 programmable RGB Neopixel LEDs, giving you a veritable rainbow full of color possibilities. The stand cleverly mounts the Pi Zero W and Unicorn pHAT at just the right angle to cast the light through the pendant light cutout and diffuse it beautifully.

The built-in wireless LAN on the Pi Zero W opens up a wealth of opportunities: connect it to your Twitter feed and track the mood of your recent tweets, or fade through the sunset and sunrise colors once you've pulled the daily sunset/sunrise times from your favorite weather server.
