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)

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