The message board uses a Particle photon (Arduino compatible) for the brain and internet connectivity and a 128×64 monochrome OLED display.
Step 1: You will need…
Step 2: Wiring
- GND and VCC, which we can conveniently get from the Photon’s pins 3V3 and GND, and
- SDA and SCL which we will connect to the Photon’s D0 and and D1 respectively.
The display consists of 128×64 pixels, which corresponds to 8 rows of 8 pixels (font size 1) or 4 lines of 16 pixels if we use a font size of 2. Our display is “monochrome”, but the first line of text is yellow and the rest is blue, so we will use the first line for our reminder and the other 3 lines for other information such as surf report and weather for the day (or whatever else is important to you).
