pi-topPULSE combines an 7x7 RBG LED matrix, 2W speaker with i2s amplifier, and Automatic Gain Control (ACG) microphone into a neat HAT for the Raspberry Pi B+/2/3, PiTop Laptop & CEED systems! The unit comes fully enclosed in a neat white injection moulded case.
pi-topPULSE is designed to help build STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) based projects with music, lights and sound. The accessory can be used with PiTop Laptop or CEED systems, or alternatively can plug straight into a Raspberry Pi B+/2/3 GPIO due to it's HAT size configuration. The microphone can be used to record music, and is fully compatible with Amazon's cloud based voice services Alexa, for voice control with your Raspberry Pi. You’ll be able to code your own games, create music and lightshows, and answer any questions you might have using pi-topPULSE & Amazon Alexa.
