Re: Sense HAT's above pins

what do you mean by "put the HAT halfway on". I understood it so (see attachment below). is that right?
I will buy headers with extended pins, anyway. :idea:
thank you for helping me! :)

Re: Sense HAT's above pins

Hats are attached by connecting another header on top of the pi, with pins which go through the hat. Some of these headers have extended pins which poke out through the top of the HAT and allow you to connect other things. ok. I get it now, but can't I just connect male jumper wires to Sense HAT's ...

Re: Sense HAT's above pins

thanks rpdom for answering,
I believe Sense HAT has GPIO pins on top of it (female headers). if motor controller does not work, I may try controlling motors with L293D chip.

Re: Sense HAT's above pins

thanks for replying :D,
I understood that all or many GPIO pins will be accessible and I will be able to connect some sensors and motors from Sense HAT without any problem.

Sense HAT's above pins

If I use Sense HAT for my robot project, will I loose any GPIO pins?
If yes I plan to use Arduino alongside Pi :idea:

thanks :)

Sense HAT + Camjam Robot

Hi, I'm planning to buy this kit (URL: http://camjam.me/?page_id=1035 ), which comes with custom motor controller board. I want to use my Sense HAT with this robot for additional functionality. I heard that HATs can't be stacked. :?: so my question is if Sense hat is compatible to above mentioned mo...
