Raspberry Pi with Pimoroni Unicorn Hat that changes color to indicate your status. This is a simple status light indicator where I can change the color of the light from a browser window on my desktop. Place the Pi outside of your office to indicate to others if you are available, busy, or other. I have included green, red, yellow, blue, pink colors in this code. You can make a chart / key to indicate the status for each color. For example, blue could indicate a phone call and pink could indicate a video conference.
