If you enjoy creating projects using Arduino you are sure to find this new MicroView chip-sized board, which is equipped with a built-in OLED display a possible addition to your projects.
The MicroView is the worlds first chip-sized Arduino with a built-in OLED display (Organic Light Emitting Diode Display). Enabling you to see what your Arduino is thinking without the need to connect it to a computer. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the MicroView project and see it in action.
Geek Ammo has created the very unique MicroView Arduino device and explains:
“No more cryptic “Hello World” LED blink sequences or shoehorning oversized displays onto your tiny Arduino™. Development is much easier when you can see what’s going on. In addition to the built-in tutorials, we’ve also built a cross platform course that runs oniPad, Microsoft Surface and modern Web Browsers on Windows, Mac and Linux.
The course takes you step by step through building a 11 different circuits including:
• Blinking LEDs and creating different colors on an RGB LED.
• Getting readings from a potentiometer (a fancy name for a knob).
• Taking the input from a push button.
• Sensing Temperature and Light
• Controlling actuators relays, motors & servos
• Making sound
The interactive course is included within the “Learning Kit” and “Educators Kit” rewards tier.”
The MicroView project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think MicroView is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help MicroView become a reality.
