Adafruit PiTFT running on Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Leo White shared a video of his adafruit PiTFT running on Raspberry Pi:

I connected up my AdaFruit PiTFT board (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1601) this weekend and spent a few minutes putting it through its paces and decided to do a short video for those who were thinking about getting one.

As you can see this isn’t going to replace a HDMI monitor (especially considering the space available when running X), but is more useful for targeted applications e.g. Displaying status, providing a specific set on controls (e.g. buttons to turn lights on and off, take readings from sensors etc.), displaying the last picture taken from the RPi Camera.

Note: The flickering of the screen isn’t noticeable in normal usage.

Thanks, Leo!
