Three ideas for your MyPiFi LCD Board

Three ideas I have made with LCDs and a raspberry pi, just to get you going with your MyPiFi LCD Support Board kit for the pi on kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1059145052/mypifi-lcd-board-support


1.  The Cacheberry pi geocaching device.  You can also use this as a petrol station locator, speed camera locator or even just have it to only show speed/time/date http://smstextblog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/cacheberry-pi-in-detail.html

2.  Weather forecaster/news/football scores.  This one involves using RSS feeds to display the latest news/forecast/result or to whatever you want to show.  Don't dorget you could program it with a Twitter api to show your tweets or follow a hashtag http://smstextblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/raspberry-pi-lcd-weather-station.html

3.  Radio display, whilst this project uses an adafruit lcd plate, you could use the Mypifi lcd board add a couple of buttons and speaker and use the mypifi kit to play radio and view station info.  http://smstextblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/wipi-radio.html

If you have any great lcd projects feel free to post them all below, don't forget to take a look at our kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1059145052/mypifi-lcd-board-support
