Adafruit Industries is one of the major contributors to the Raspberry Pi revolution. From simple enclosures to complex expansion boards, the company has given more than its fair share to the community. In particular, The Adafruit RGB 16×2 LCD is a welcome addition to the product line. Interfacing with the GPIO, the board provides two lines of 16 characters. The display comes with either a backlit screen with dark letters or a dark screen with illuminated letter. On board buttons allow for scrolling and selecting options. As always with Adafruit products, tutorials are available to help users get set up and build projects. Adafruit RGB Negative/Positive 16×2 LCD+Keypad Kit for Raspberry Pi are $24.95 at the Adafruit stores.
