Build an Analog clock using our newly announced GLCD shield!

We announced a new shield last month, a one that was requested dozens of times. The GLCD Shield!


The shield acts as a retro graphical LCD like with all the shapes pixelated as you normally find Arduino’s GLCDs.

The shield allows you to draw and design custom interfaces for your 1Sheeld project.

You can draw rectangles, lines, dots, ellipses, and even interactive buttons, sliders and checkboxes.

This is example showing a simple drawing using our GLCD shapes:
11874621_10153104634411395_32723505_o (1)

This one uses our interactive buttons to control our office lights and coffee machine

11865206_10153104637136395_1929223939_o (1)

And this is the MEGA example, A fully functional analog clock!


Thanks to our intern Ahmed El-Hinidy, he was able to build it in under couple of hours and he posted the whole project with code on Hackster.

If you have any questions regarding the new shield, don’t hesitate to post it on our forum and we would be very happy to help.
