“IoTouch is a new solution especially thought for the Internet of Things. It is composed of an ESP32 based board with Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities, and thanks to an external embedded GPU it is directly interfaced with a 24 RGB TFT glass capacitive display. With a really minimal and compact design and thanks to the adhesive touch screen ioTouch can be fitted almost wherever you want. In the minimal configuration, you just need to plug the USB cable to power on the device and HAVE FUN… “
