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!
