The bundled ninja diffuser makes the pixels look extra-shiny by providing some subtle diffusion, blurring the lines between each pixel. Simply use four of the nuts to space the diffuser slightly away from the HAT, and the other four to secure it. The folks from Pimoroni give us a demonstration in the following video:


Using the display is easy thanks to Pimoroni's python library and many examples are provided. Due to the high current draw of this HAT you will need a high-current power >2A supply such as the official power pack
