A robot friend to sit on your desk and scroll the news, weather, or your Twitter feed - Scroll Bot!
The Scroll Bot Kit combines the Pi Zero W with our new swish Scroll pHAT HD board, and masquerades as a friendly orange robot, perfect for sitting on your desk or on a shelf.
It's ideal for scrolling messages or for simple animations and, of course, it takes advantage of the built-in wireless LAN on the Pi Zero W.
It'll take around 30 minutes to assemble everything (check out our assembly guide for details).
This kit contains the following:
Note that this is a soldering project, although you could use one of no-solder hammer headers!
Scroll Bot uses our new Scroll pHAT HD board, a dense matrix of 17x7 (119 total) bright white LEDs.
Each pixel's brightness can be controlled individually, meaning that it's possible to create stunning animations or even anti-aliased text.
The LED matrix sits behind Scroll Bot's mouth, and the frosted orange acrylic diffuses the LEDs beautifully.
Use the built-in wireless LAN to make your Scroll Bot internet-connected and have him/her/it inform you of the latest news, weather, track hashtags or mentions on Twitter, or much, much more.
Our handy one-line installer will install the Scroll pHAT HD Python library for you. We've included a bunch of examples too, to show off what you can do with Scroll pHAT HD.
