The RGB LED HAT 8x8 for Raspberry Pi WS2812B is a great addition to any almost Raspberry Pi project, and is an 8x8 grid that can plug directly onto the top of a Raspberry Pi. It is compatible with all revisions of Pi’s, offering 24-bit true colour to brighten up projects or add colourful, simple displays at up to 800Kbps data rate.

The modular style of this HAT makes it extremely easy to use, allowing for even beginners to plug it in and operate it via the single DIN signal input pin. It is 65mm x 56.2mm, with 3mm mounting holes for safely securing it to the top of a Pi, with a surprising amount of functionality despite it’s simple nature.

Typical Applications for the RGB LED HAT 8x8 for Raspberry Pi WS2812B:

The WS2812B 8x8 RGB LED HAT for Raspberry Pi is highly functional, and can be used for almost any projects that require simple displays or colourful interfaces. This includes basic systems like alarms clocks and robot faces, but can also be used for projects like:

  • Building a graphical equaliser that reacts to sound by using both colour and level variations to visually display the volume and frequencies of music, sound effects or real-life sounds.
  • Creating a robot’s face that can change colour according to “mood” and display emotions like anger, sadness or excitement.
  • Creating an environment sensor that displays the temperature, cloud coverage, wind speed and other useful bits of information in real-time.

Of course, with a Raspberry Pi, there are a countless number of different projects that this LED grid could be incorporated into, with quick response times and true colour RGB making it far more exciting than many of the typical LED Matrix Displays on the market.
