Build and program your own mood light

This kit shows off the capabilities of Raspberry Pi in a useful and fun application. This kit includes everything you need to build your mood light, including the Pi Zero W single core CPU which has wireless LAN and Bluetooth, making it a fully functional, compact unit. The kit also includes the Pimoroni Unicorn PHAT with an 8x4 matrix of RGB LEDs which can be individually controlled.

Soldering and the build
The overall build takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Please note, the female and male pin headers will require soldering (soldering equipment not included). The Pimoroni Mood Light Kit also includes the adaptors needed so you can get started with the assembly right out of the box. All you need to add to your kit is a microSD card. The enclosure for your mood light is made from cast acrylic for a sturdy build, and is easy to fit together with the nuts and bolts supplied.

Software projects
The Pimoroni Mood Light can be coded using the one-line installer for Unicorn pHAT, so you can get the lights flashing and try out different colours straight away. If you’re stuck for inspiration on how to utilise your Mood Light Kit, the Python library has a range of examples to get you started. These examples include coding the LEDs of the Unicorn PHAT to rotate colours, creating a soothing and impressive display. Once you learn the examples and begin to understand the Python language, you can try out your own code and experiment with creating sunset and sunrise fades or a constant display of your favourite colours for desktop inspiration.
