Vintage Arduino Slide Show Viewer
Lewis took an old slide viewer that he found at an antique store, and modernized it by adding an Arduino controlled LCD Display.
Quite some time ago, I found an old slide viewer in an antique store, and had an idea for a neat little hack. I finally finished the hack, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
I took a
1.8″ TFT LCD from Adafruit, some AAA batteries, and a couple other bits and pieces, and turned the slide viewer into a digital photo viewer that shows a slide show of photos.
Check out the build here.
This lovely little display breakout is the best way to add a small, colorful and bright display to any project. Since the display uses 4-wire SPI to communicate and has its own pixel-addressable frame buffer, it can be used with every kind of microcontroller. Even a very small one with low memory and few pins available!
