Here’s another small selection of interesting stuff from the web.
- Johan Kanflo has an couple of interesting posts on how to create a low-cost WiFi camera using the ESP8266. His adapter board is flexible enough to be used as a stand-alone development board, too.
- And next …one from Instructables which is intentionally meant to be amusing (as opposed to the horrendous, “10-easy-ways-to-electrocute-yourself-with-an-ESP8266” crap which they normally publish). It’s a relatively simple addition to a robot toy. It looks like it could be fun, shared hack if you have a son or daughter who is interested in techie stuff.
- Hackaday featured Stefan’s Forex-Display recently. It must qualify as the tidiest outside with the messiest inside. Is there a special prize for that? 🙂
- If you’re using a TFT display (like the ILI9341) with the Arduino-IDE, then there’s a good chance that you’re using some variant of the UTFT code developed by Henning Karlsen (such as the ESP8266 package from “gnulabis”). Well, Henning also maintains a repository of very useful fonts for those displays, which are definitely worth a look.
