There are a lot of guides and some top notch documentation on getting start with a Raspberry Pi. Here are the parts I used to get the Pi set up, and the steps that I followed.

All of the links I provided are important and really thorough. Follow them carefully!


  • Pi Zero W
  • Micro SD card (8gb)
  • SD Card reader
  • Set of headers
  • soldering iron
  • solder
  • mini hdmi adapter
  • micro usb to usb adapter
  • keyboard
  • display
  • hdmi cable


This final step on the Adafruit documentation for the ic2 setup is necessary for the next step, which is setting up the actual sensor.
