Arduino-based TFT Touch Shield Calculator: “Calcuino”

Check out this great video (in Spanish) about a “Calcuino” project from Opiron Electronics built using one of our 2.8″ TFT Touch Shield for Arduino, and tuned up on the Adafruit Forums here. Here’s their project announcement at Opiron.com:

We won’t share today what a calculator is or what it does, we have all used one and certainly has been useful in many situations. We intend to do one with a TFT touchscreen and an Arduino, and we christened it: “Calcuino”. It incorporates all the basic functions:
Addition / subtraction / multiplication / division and RESET button and DELETE button.

2.8″ TFT Touch Shield for Arduino – 2.8″: Spice up your Arduino project with a beautiful large touchscreen display shield with built in microSD card connection. This TFT display is big (2.8″ diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful (18-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240×320 pixels with individual pixel control. It has way more resolution than a black and white 128×64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen…. (read more)


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.

  1. The touchable keypad code could work well for home-grown alarm systems for entering a pin number.
