How will the Display-O-Tron 3000 enhance my Raspberry Pi?
A screen and control buttons is surely one of the coolest additions you can have for your Raspberry Pi. This gives you the ability to interact with your Pi directly and without the need for a keyboard, TV or monitor.

The Display-O-Tron 3000 features an LED backlit display with three separate, fully controllable RGB (Red-Green-Blue) LEDs. These jazz up the display with a choice of mixed colour patterns typically not found on other backlit LCD displays.

What can I use the Display-O-Tron 3000 for?
With the Display-O-Tron 3000, you can display stationary and scrolling text – which is useful for monitoring a system, seeing incoming tweets and emails, or viewing an IP address. The 16 x 3 character display can display ASCII and custom characters, especially useful if you use it for a project involving playing music or telling you the weather.

The Display-O-Tron 3000 is one of the slimmest 16 x 3 LCD displays available. It comes with an LCD screen, and also allows you to give direct commands via four directional buttons and a central select key.

The nine front-facing LEDs can also be used as a quick status indicator for applications such as download completion status, volume or even representing your account balance. You can see examples of code for your Display-O-Tron on this Github repository.

What is compatible with the Display-O-Tron 3000 board?
The Display-O-Tron 3000 is compatible with the large majority of models of Raspberry Pi, all which have 26 GPIO pins. When attached to the Raspberry Pi boards, it is able to fit inside the Pibow cases which are available here.

The slim 7mm profile of the Display-O-Tron 3000 makes it the ideal companion for many projects. Combined with the Python support from Pimoroni, in the link above, the possibilities of what you could create are limited only by your imagination.
