After a rather short wait (Ha! Take that estimates of 2-6 weeks!), a strange red box arrived today from the folks at Spark Fun. In this strange box, aside from one or two less useful goodies, was a LCD. Why you ask, simple, movement, flashing lights etc is all good for a microcontroller like the ever useful Arduino but once in a while, getting an actual value or text from it is great.

As I’ve now been sufficiently distracted while writing this, I’ll just end with an image or two, just because I can. Ideas of projects welcome. Enjoy.
