Micro Computers / Displays - No fooling!

From: Chad Smith 
------------------------------------------------------
I found a couple of projects on Kickstarter that might interest some people
on here.

See what your Arduino is thinking

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1516846343/microview-chip-sized-arduino-with-built-in-oled-di?ref=popular

The MicroView is the first chip-sized Arduino compatible that lets you see
what your Arduino is thinking using a built-in OLED display.

A Touchscreen for your Raspberry Pi

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2135028730/piscreen-a-35-tft-with-touchscreen-for-the-raspber?ref=popular

PiScreen: A 3.5" TFT with touchscreen for the Raspberry Pi - All the
hardware needed to add a 3.5" TFT (480x320) with touchscreen control to
your Raspberry Pi, never need a monitor again!

And a bonus - wearable computing

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/guardyen/metawear-production-ready-wearables-in-30-minutes?ref=popular

MetaWear: Production Ready Wearables in 30 Minutes or Less!

A tiny ARM+Bluetooth LE Platform for developing Wearable products (and
more) that are certified and ready to ship to customers.

I haven't backed any of these yet, but I am seriously considering the first
one.

=============================================================== From: "32cstyle ." ------------------------------------------------------ These are cool! I would like to get one. It's something about a LCD or OLED that pulls me in everytime. Here's something I saw in the Arudino's group on Linkedin. For you all who like PLC's. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/24519005/controllino-the-first-arduino-compatible-plc
