Just wanted to share what I’ve been able to accomplish with the various modules.
I have to say that I’m pretty happy with the end product.
Making it work was fairly easy; building the frame for it was a much more involved process, but all worthwhile in the end.
Here are the modules I’ve downloaded and currently use.
- PIR Sensor by Paviro
- Bitcoin feed
- Trello card (bottom right)
- Twitter topics trending for the area
- Google time to work (not displayed at the moment - only turns on during certain times)
- Gmail calendar events
- Weather info
I used an old VGA screen with the active HDMI converter, and it works great with the PIR sensor as it shuts off if there is no feed.
I bought a piece of glass on a local classified for 25$ CAD, and some reflective film (this was actually more difficult than I originally anticipated - I took three tries and still am not 100% satisfied)
Feel free to comment!
