Here at Adafruit we never tire of cool, new displays, so these super sweet e-paper displays really caught our eye! Pimoroni’s Inky pHat is a petite 212×104 pixel two-color display that looks fantastic and is easy to read even in bright daylight. Broadcast your tweets, the weather, or even graphing data. eInk is great for displays that don’t change often, due to the 3-second display-change-cycle. But the contrast and readability cannot be beat. Best of all, if you shut down the Pi, the display stays on, which is pretty magical the first time you see it.
No soldering required! The display is already assembled and connected via a ribbon cable. Just plop Inky pHAT on your Pi of choice and run the installer, and soon you’ll have the cutest little electronic paper display.
This particular e-Paper display is Black and White only – if you want a splash of color, check out the red tri-color or yellow tri-color versions. You’ll get an extra color layer but it takes longer to switch the display contents with those two.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
