The Pimoroni Explorer Hat

Simon says use the Explorer Hat!

I recently bought myself an Explorer Hat pro from the guys over at Pimoroni. This is a great little hat which offers lots of connectivity for prototyping on the Raspberry Pi.

Features include: (from Pimoroni website)

  • Four buffered 5V tolerant inputs
  • Four powered 5V outputs (up to 500mA!)
  • Four capacitive touch pads
  • Four capacitive crocodile clip pads
  • Four coloured LEDs
  • PRO ONLY Four analog inputs
  • PRO ONLY Two H-bridge motor drivers
  • PRO ONLY A heap of useful (unprotected) 3v3 goodies from the GPIO
  • A mini breadboard on top!

I was excited to see what I could do with this and thought about project that uses the LEDs and the capacitive touch pads.


So I decided to recreate the classic game of “Simon Says”.
