Our Pimoroni pals have curated a beautifully modern Mood Light Kit that’ll look great on your bedside table, bookcase, or desk. It’s even internet-connected!
This kit has just-about-everything you’ll need: Pimoroni’s Unicorn pHAT board with 32 programmable RGB Neopixel LEDs, diffuser, power adapter, and a beautifully acrylic enclosure to make it look like a lamps. It even includes a Pi Zero W. All you need is to add your own micro-SD card and USB power supply. It’ll take you around 30 minutes to assemble everything (check out Pimoroni’s assembly guide for details).

Mood Light uses the popular Unicorn pHAT board, with 32 programmable RGB Neopixel LEDs, giving you a veritable rainbow full of color possibilities. The stand cleverly mounts the Pi Zero W and Unicorn pHAT at just the right angle to cast the light through the pendant light cutout and diffuse it beautifully.
The built-in wireless LAN on the Pi Zero W opens up a wealth of opportunities: connect it to your Twitter feed and track the mood of your recent tweets, or fade through the sunset and sunrise colors once you’ve pulled the daily sunset/sunrise times from your favorite weather server.
