Getting Started with the Matrix Creator – Sensor Box

A new add-on board for the Raspberry Pi is here and it is absolutely loaded with LEDs, sensors, and even a microphone array! Say hello to the stylishly circular Matrix Creator. It fits sleekly on top of your Raspberry Pi and conveniently looks like the top of the Amazon Echo (which you can totally build with it).

We’re here to get you up and running with the Matrix and also to show you how to stream all of its sensor data to Initial State!
