A web-based emulator of the Sense HAT is now in beta and ready for you all to get your hands on.
In partnership with US-based startup Trinket, the emulator has been created to allow everybody the chance to programme with the Sense HAT, increasing educational opportunities AND future interaction with Astro Pi, our two Raspberry Pi units currently sat aboard the International Space Station.
The emulator offers access to a vast library of features, including environmental controls, full Python syntax highlighting, social media integration, and project download to a physical Raspberry Pi.
This weekend, we’re offering you all the chance to access the beta for the emulator, and ask for your help in return by logging any bugs you discover within the build. A link is provided below, allowing you the means to report anything you find… though we’re hoping you don’t find anything!
