$13 HAT aims Raspberry Pi at real-world I/O projects
Pimoroni’s $13 “Explorer HAT” add-on for the Raspberry Pi can drive motors and touchscreens, integrate sensors, interface with 5V devices, and more.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation’s HAT (Hardware Attached on Top) add-on board standard enables the Linux-ready Raspberry Pi SBC to automatically configure its GPIO signals and drivers for use with external devices. Pimoroni has released Explorer HAT and Explorer HAT Pro models that support the HAT standard on the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, as well as the first-generation Model B+ and Model A+ boards.
