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.
