Here's my latest gadget for the Arduino.... A touchscreen display from 4D Systems.

Remind me to bring the ARRL Arduino book to the May club meeting.    Any initial ideas on what
you will use the touchscreen for?    Was it expensive?

I'd be interested in seeing that book too Tom.

I have the interest in doing some type of motor control on two variable capacitors for tuning a vertical antenna.

See you Wednesday.

It can be used as a replacement for a LCD display so it has many potential possibilities.

That is a neat display Brian.  Who sells it and how much?  How much memory does it use for the driver?

The one I bought (Shield-22) was from Mouser.com.  They have many of 4D Systems for sale at http://www.mouser.com/4d-systems/

I haven't calculated how much memory the driver is using but I'm sure it could made more efficient by only including the functions that you need for a project.
