Raspberry Pi St George's day with Unicorn Hat
I’ve recently bought a Pimoroni Unicorn Hat for my daughter to use on her Raspberry Pi. It’s a add-on for the Raspberry Pi which provides 64 LEDs each of which can be individually set to any colour.
As it’s St George’s day I’ve created a St George’s cross.
The photo is shown through a diffuser as the LEDs are very bright for a photo.
Programming is easy using the supplied Python libraries.
First install the python libraries following the instructions here: Pimoroni Unicorn Hat.
You can download the St George’s cross below:
Unzip the file using
tar -xvzf stgeorgesflag.tgz
and then run using sudo stgeorgesflag.py
