Steampunk display system with Arduino

Steampunk display system with Arduino

One of the great features of the Arduino platform is the ability to receive or generate incoming data, and use that to control various outputs. With that knowledge and a little imagination you can come up with all sorts of fun output devices, including the following “steampunk” example by Costa Yannakis.

His system uses a mixture of contemporary and older devices – such as an Arduino-controlled servo to move a classic dial, along with lasers and an LCD. This would be a great display device for an interesting clock, weather station and more.

For more information about this and other related projects, visit Costa’s website. And for more, we’re on facebookGoogle+, and twitter – so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Looking for a rapid-use LCD for your Arduino or compatible development boards such as the example above? Save time and move forward with the Freetronics LCD & Keypad shield which contains a bright 16×2 character LCD and five buttons that can be read from only one analogue input pin:
