Controlling the Freetronics OLED via processing

As an interesting example of processing-Arduino synergy, Freetronics forum member "things" has shown how simple it can be. Using their example a user can create a graphical image on the PC running processing, and have the image mirrored on our new OLED display module. Apart from having some fun, it's a great way to create a secondary display for your PC - ideal for notifications, warnings and more. 

For the Arduino sketch, processing code and more discussion - visit our Freetronics customer forum. 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
