Tipping your Raspberry Pi FEZ HAT


So you have a Raspberry Pi. It's great, but hey, it's the Internet of Things, plural. It would be cool if there were an easy way to connect to a bunch of devices easily, and that there were already C# drivers available. Good thing there's now...

The FEZ HAT...The Ultimate Raspberry Pi Topping!

With our continued commitment to support Windows 10 on devices (the IoT extensions), we are proud to announce the FEZ HAT. The FEZ HAT allows for a Fast and Easy (FEZ) way to connect all kinds of sensors and devices to the Raspberry Pi. The FEZ HAT is compatible with the RPi 2 Model B. An entire C# driver is provided for immediate use with Windows 10, and can be easily ported to Linux. The FEZ HAT is the ultimate topping for your "Pi"!

    Greg, thanks for posting about this. I just got a review unit from GHI last week, and already loving it. The ability to build a single UWP app that can run on desktop, tablet, phone, AND RPi2, and then add sensors and other hardware, is really cool.

    Love being able to leverage XAML and C# pretty much everywhere now.

    So with and ?? software you can now play 4 sounds simultaneously that are stored on your microSD card? Might want to show if that were possible, and how to link, with some nice rich examples in UWP format.
