I have a question to ask you guys. Can I use the Raspberry Pi Sense HAT (the one used in Astro Pi) with the Raspberry Pi 3 without having any kind of problems?

Thanks in advance!

The 3 has the same form factor as the 2/0/+ models, with the same 40 pin GPIO header, so yes. The buses involved will work the same way, hence so should the software.


No it wont work the sense.hat temperature sensors are 6mm away from the CPU which has a temperature of 39 deg c. if you buy a sense hat board connect it remote from the board
