Beginner project to get started: Windows 10 IoT App + C# Library Port of the Pimoroni Rainbow HAT <***>

Introduction

To get further (previous project on Reddit) started with IoT apps for Windows 10 IoT Core running on a Raspberry Pi, I ported the offical Python Library to C# and developed a simple but working UWP app to play around with the mighty Pimoroni Rainbow HAT.

The Rainbow HAT was intended to be used in a Google Android Things startrt kit.

Unfortunately Google let the Android Things maker communites fall. After this, I decided to use it in a Windows 10 IoT Core context.

Features

  • Control the large R, G, B LEDs
  • Listen to ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ capacitive touch buttons
  • Piezo buzzer
  • APA102 to control seven multicolor LEDs
  • HT16K33 14-segment alphanumeric displays
  • BMP280 temperature sensor
  • BMP280 pressure sensor
