microbit + 1.8 TFT
This post is really only for demonstration purposes but if someone sees value in it and could perhaps have a use for this then we could expand the discussion and talk about some of the things we need to do to display graphics and text. I translated code from the Waveshare web site into a micropython version for the microbit. I have no previous experience with tft displays so if anyone out there has suggestions I am all ears.
The microbit is limited for this kind of application but I am able to display text, numerals and small images, its a little slow but maybe good for a message board or temperature indicator, information that is not changing too rapidly. The example at the following video is the microbit on board light meter.
