"PIP" - the Arduino Web Browser

And now for something we've never considered using an Arduino for comes "PIP" - the web browser for Arduino. Created by hackaday.io member glichrist, the browser can render and display HTML-based pages with an Ethernet-enabled Arduino board and display the results using most popular displays such as an OLED. With the use of an analogue joystick the user can navigate the pages and browse like it's 1993.


On a more serious note, this is a clever use of an Arduino and some very efficient coding to make it all possible, and the project still has more imrovements to be added. So for more information and to follow the progress, visit the hackaday.io website. And for more, we're on facebooktwitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Looking for a small yet useful OLED display for your Arduino (or Raspberry Pi)? Then check out our 128x128 pixel OLED Module. With a diagonal size of 1.5" and 16,384 colours to select from, so almost anything is possible. Furthermore there's a microSD card socket, and removable tabs on each side which can hold LEDs and buttons:

And using the module is made simple - we have tutorials and drivers for both the Arduino and Raspberry Pi platforms - great for experimenters or those who use both systems. Furthermore, check out the forum where members are already creating modified drivers to rapidly increase the display speed. For more information including our Quickstart guides - and of course to order - visit the OLED Module product page
