The Little Bird Toucan is an smart RGB LED HAT designed for the Raspberry Pi!
Based on the APA102, the Toucan packs 8 super-bright LEDs.
Each of the LEDs are dimmable, and individually controllable (Raspberry Pi Rainbow LEDs anyone?)!

You can use the Toucan for creating Raspberry Pi LEDs status indicators, and they make a great Raspberry Pi Neopixel alternative!

Just like other Raspberry Pi RGB LEDs, you can create generate colourful gradients, pulsing effects or just flash them on and off like crazy.

Simply plug it atop the Pi, where it sits conveniently, and fire up the Python library to blast out some rainbows or flickering lights!

If you're looking for LEDs for Raspberry Pi, or controllable LED lights, the Toucan is for you. Not only is low cost, but is made in Sydney, Australia!

The Data Line is on Pin 16 (GPIO23) and Clock Line is on Pin 18 (GPIO24).Β
