A robot friend to sit on your desk and scroll the news, weather, or your Twitter feed! The Scroll Bot kit has what you'll need to build a scrolling LED display that is wifi enabled with a Raspberry Pi Zero W.

  • An easy way to set up an LED scrolling display with your Raspberry Pi.
  • Useful for LED scrolling display projects.
  • Contents:
    • Scroll HAT Mini with 17x7 individually dimmable white LEDs

    • Orange robot stand and diffuser
    • 50cm USB A to micro-B cable
    • USB A (female) to micro B (male) adaptor

  • This kit will turn your Raspberry Pi Zero W and an SD card into a scrolling LED screen setup!
  • Scroll Bot uses the Scroll HAT Mini board, a dense matrix of 17x7 (119 total) bright white LEDs. Each pixel's brightness can be controlled individually, meaning that it's possible to create stunning animations or even anti-aliased text. The LED matrix sits behind Scroll Bot's mouth, and the frosted orange acrylic diffuses the LEDs beautifully.

    Use the built-in wireless LAN to make your Scroll Bot internet-connected and have him/her/them inform you of the latest news, weather, track hashtags or mentions on Twitter, or much, much more.


    • 17x7 matrix of bright white pixels (119 total)
    • Individual PWM brightness control of each pixel
    • Uses the IS31FL3731 LED matrix driver chip
    • 3-layer orange robot stand and diffuser
    • Pi Zero WH with single core CPU and built-in wireless LAN and Bluetooth

    Pimorini's handy one-line installer will install the Scroll pHAT HD Python library for you, which will also work with Scroll HAT Mini. We've included a bunch of examples too, to show off what you can do!

    Note: that the default orientation for Scroll HAT Mini is upside-down if you're using it in a Scroll Bot. To flip it, simply add scrollphathd.rotate(180) towards the top of your code, just below the import lines.


    Assembled size of Scroll Bot is 125x85x67mm (WxHxD).
