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.

Features

  • 8x4 matrix of programmable RGB Neopixel LEDs
  • 3-layer white and yellow pendant light stand and diffuser
  • Pi Zero W with single core CPU and built-in wireless LAN and Bluetooth
  • Adaptor kit
  • 50cm USB A to micro-B cable (power your Pi from an existing charger or computer)
  • Python library
  • Female and male headers require soldering

Technical Details

Assembled size of Mood Light is 85x125x70mm (WxHxD).

  • 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 ...
  • Pi Zero - Cloud Print Server
  • I really love the reliability of my Fuji wireless mono laser printer. Best printer I've ever owned. However, it was released without Google Cloud Print. This required constant driver installation on new devices and the inconvenience of not being able to print documents until I am home. I had quite a few solutions in mind such as moving it near the router that could act as a print server. Too much effort ;) This is where the Rasp...
  • Retro Hand held Pi Zero
  • I bought a Pi zero w from Core Electronics for a friend, also bought the official case too but thought I'd fit the Pi into something he can show off! I used an old hand held game case I had laying around, I had to remove the original circuit board and plan where to place the Pi board....
  • mintyPi
  • This is an awesome project that takes about 6 hours to complete. Hours upon hours of endless fun thereafter! Ideally, some prior soldering experience is advantageous but if you take your time and practice before you start it's beginner friendly! The battery will give just over 3 hours on a single charge and can be recharged via the handy micro USB port. System updates, ROM transfers etc all possible with the Pi Zero W' built in...
  • Raspberry Pi OSMC - Custom Media Center
  • I wanted to upgrade my media center (RPi B+ with Xbian) to something a bit nicer, more stable and more accessible than just the RPi in a basic plastic case.
