SenseHat python roll [closed]


I´m thinking about getting an Sensehat and im praticing but had an like issue, I use the emulator and print the roll into the console when I turn the rollof the raspi to say 60° everythink is fine but when I turn it to like -171° it displays this : “(‘roll: ‘, 189.01, ‘x: ‘, 9)” (just take a look on the bold part) I know after 180° it continues but how can I like change it to like really be -171° I had the idea of doing like for I in range(181, 360): “do math stuff and put an ‘-‘ in front”

but that would be soo much mowrk stuff todo is there a easier way? .-.

  • what is a roll? … what does do math stuff mean? … you asked only one question, and it is nonsense … please ask a real question – jsotola Jun 19 at 22:15
  • i reread your post several times …. it appears that you are asking a simple arithmeric question that has nothing to do with RPi and nothing to do with programming …. please clarify what it is that you are asking – jsotola Jun 20 at 0:23
  • @Fabian, I feel jealous that you have a senseHat. I read about it in MagPi and also in the news. But I am too poor to afford one. Perhaps I should google and learn, and try to DIY one.

  • I googled to refresh my memory. raspberrypi.org/products/sense-hat Sense HAT add-on board for Rpi, made especially for the Astro Pi mission – it launched to the International Space Station in Dec 2015 – and is now available to buy. Has 8×8 RGB LED matrix, a five-button joystick and includes the following sensors: Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Temperature, Barometric pressure, Humidity, We’ve also created a Python library providing easy access to everything on the board. Wow, so it is GyroAcceleroMagnetoBaroHumid (11or 12 DOF?), python, … Still pythoning in space? – tlfong01 Jun 20 at 2:37    
  • To make sure if SH is 10 DOF, I read: 9-DOF for Rpi raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/74865/…Now I am pretty sure SenseHat is 11DOF!. So E14 selling HK$400 is good buy. Need to try my MEMS GyroAccelero soon. Perhaps I should revise my playing notes and see if I can answer @Fabian’s question. He says roll 60 degrees is OK, but no luck when over 180 degrees, or negative something? But I forgot my TRIGONOMETRY. Should youTube again. 🙂 youtube.com/watch?v=R4GLAKEjU4w – tlfong01 Jun 20 at 2:53    



  1. I am using Trinket emulator to play with SenseHat.
  2. Rolling to 60° is good, but -171° gives somethings like -189°. Why?


Let me see. I read about SenseHat in MagPi, but I have never seen the real thing, or played with the fake thing using an emulator. Perhaps now I can start playing with the fake thing first, and buy the real thing later.

Now I am playing with trinket on Chinese Windows 10. I wrote a little program to print time and found everything OK, except it is python 2.7, not 3.0. I need to find out how to do python 3.0
