Displaying weather and time data on an Arduino-compatible OLED

Arduino enthusiast and Freetronics customer Jed Hodson has been experimenting with a range of our products and has now published another of his interesting projects for all of us to learn from. In his latest example Jed demonstrates how to display the temperature, relative humidity and current time on one of our colour OLED display modules, and our HUMID: and RTC: modules - as shown below:

Kudos to Jed for sharing his learning and efforts with us, of which you can review on his hackster page. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

So have you seen our new OLED display? It's the new 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
