Hi guys and girls, I showed a red backlit LCD on show and tell last week, and I just did a post on how to do it if anyone is interested. 🙂
I was sitting at my dining room table the other night looking at a project, and thought, wow, that Nokia 5110 display would look really good in red! I was right..
I wanted one in green and decided to share how it was done. This is a quick video of how to change the LED’s on a Nokia 5110 display from Adafruit. Really quite simple, but it requires removing the glass LCD from the board (be careful!). If you are not familiar with these LCD’s, they are low power, fast, easy to read in sunlight, and cheap. Kind of hard to beat really. I have used them before in projects and have always been happy with the results.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
