@Steve I asked this question of Max when he mentioned the 16x2 character display- is it configured as a write only memory?

I believe the cheap white on blue display 2x16 display I used conforms the the Hitachi standard so can be read from as well as written to. I have to say I didn't study this device in great detail as all I wanted to do was display some information so used the standard Arduino library for this device.

>> To reinforce my stance I re-published my blog "Defensive Designing for Displays" which I hope you find interesting

 

Your blog makes very interesting reading. I have certainly seen the display appear to hang during the breadboard stage but don't recall any issues with the current implementation. I have bookmarked your blog and will incorporate what you have recommended if and when I add a display to my 3D 8x8x8 RGB LED cube.

@Garcia Are you maybe thinking in adding some remote controlled capabilities? There are some Arduino shields that makes wireless TCP/IP connectivity an affordable functionality.

This is not the first time someone has asked about a remote control option. In fact Prot-Pic who I source some of my components from liked my video and blog so much that have gone away to do something similar for the office shelving and control it from their network. Maybe they will share it with use.

It is fare to say that my system is a working prototype and there are many options I could adopt. To be honest, my hallway is a thoroughfare to every room in the house and it's nice to twiddle the knobs as we regularly pass buy. In fact I like the knobs better than buttons so right now I have no plans to introduce a remote control option. My focus right now is my 3D 8x8x8 RGB LED cube.

@Steve: I love the way you have housed everything in the enclosure. Indeed, the control panel looks very professional -- this is far from being a trivial issue when working in a hobbyist prototype level.

@Steve

hierarchical menus might be usefull if I use a display on my LED Cube project. This would be added much later on though. I need to get the cube built and the basis of some control circuitry going first.

@Max  I have to say that I love the christmas tree one -- wow!

After the RGB LED Cube, a Christmas tree similar to that one could be on the books.

@Steve @Crusty: Definitely sounds like you and I should have a chat off line some time soon.

I just sent you both an email introducing you to each other.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
