Hello!

Does anyone know if the BrickPi3 is compatible with the Sense HAT?

Thank you!

Hello @dorian,
The SenseHat isn’t compatible unfortunately. On paper it looks like it should be compatible but we haven’t been able to make it work so far.
The first hurdle is physical connection. The SenseHat requires all 40 pins and BrickPi3 only offers 26. There are two ways around that. You can remove the S1 and S2 connectors so the SenseHat will fit, or you can get an extra long 26 pins header so the SenseHat will float over the connectors (in which case you can’t close the case anymore)

Regardless of physical connection, they don’t seem to be compatible.
