Since my last encounter with a self synchronizing wifi clock I ended up learning how to implement my own display driver. Unfortunately the display died on me when testing it on a new power supply (which appeared to be malfunctioning afterwards) and so I have been thinking of porting my code to use the Adafruit 2.8″ display. Pretty much most of the functionality remains from what I’ve made before, the most interesting thing I wanted to add this time was making use of the resistive touch screen. I could easily made a basic GUI to adjust settings and so on, but by some unknown reason I can’t get the touch positioning to work reliable on the Due board. Though it does function on Uno, Uno does not offer the needed program space (I’m at 40~50k). So, all together there is not much to it, but here is what I ended up with:
Next, I’ll check if there is the possibility to hook it up to Raspberry Pi and control it using NodeJS. Enjoy the holidays, see you in 2015!
