Galactic Unicorn Review: Stellar Performance


The Raspberry Pi Pico W disrupted the status quo in mid 2022. For a time we were happy with the Raspberry Pi Pico. For $4 it brought a lot of computing power but it lacked something that ESP32 and ESP8266 owners had, Wi-Fi. The Raspberry Pi Pico W’s higher price, $6 versus $4 saw that extra $2 bring Wi-Fi and a lot more opportunities to the tiny microcontroller.

Pimoroni capitalized on the Pico W and released a range of Pico W Aboard products, from tiny sensor platforms to an Inventor’s inspiration. The Pimoroni team also teased a new “Unicorn” board. Pimoroni has a history of releasing Unicorn themed products. The original Unicorn HAT being the first, but the latest is the $50 Galactic Unicorn which sees the Raspberry Pi Pico W powering an incredible 538 RGB LEDs.
