Hi Sam

At some stage I was intending to add a 16×2 or 20×4 lcd to display and scroll through the live stream data items with a pushbutton. I notice that AndyG has produced a lot of code to implement the lcd on the pebble project. I am guessing that grafting that code into the segmeter.pde file would be quite an exercise – i.e. beyond my meagre programming skills.

Any thoughts/comments?

Thanks

Rob

Hey Rob,

This would be an awesome extension, and very possible!

This code was in the SEGmeter code, it was removed for some clarity.

I’m not an expert in LCD screens, I prefer to make the web page and view it on my iPhone!

Andy and the hackerspaces guys like Luke all know how to make the LCD’s work. :D

Sam.

Thanks Sam

I will be talking with the guys shortly on this. The iphone option is good for iphone owners I guess but does this mean your router config is setup for “ap” and not “sta” as I currently have set? I thought it would need “sta” to connect to my home network router.

With an lcd display I can hopefully encourage all family members to look at it occasionally and start helping to control consumption around the house. (Yeah I am dreaming.)

Regards

Rob

That’s the reason why we are using the Android based lifeforms for the in home displays

These are really nice, and simple to setup, just a hyperlink to a widget.
