PiPiano follow-up HAT for the Raspberry Pi launched

Pimoroni have announced the launch of their latest product, a new HAT which follows on from the excellent work of Zach Igielman and his PiPiano board.

The board comes fully-assembled and uses 13 capacitive touch pads instead of physical buttons. It has an LED for each piano ‘key’ and also has additional buttons (and accompanying LEDs) to change instrument and go up and down an octave. It comes with a Python software library to make programming it as simple as possible and is accompanied by examples including the ability to turn the board into a MIDI controller.

The icing on the cake (as you can see from the picture) is that it is a work of art – Pimoroni have done such a lovely job taking Zach’s board and making it even better from a visual point of view.

It is available for a very-reasonably £15 plus delivery from Pimoroni and The Pi Hut.

I’ve already got mine on order and will be doing a review as soon as I possibly can!
