2.8” TFT Touch Shield for Arduino

From the first time I laid eyes on this arduino shield, I was super impressed of the power of a small arduino.  Not only does this shield come with a  built in microSD card connection, but it controls a large touchscreen display as well. The display has a decent resolution and a touch sensitive screen that can detect a user’s finger given any location.

Simply plug is in and load up the library and then you’ve got yourself a working touch sensitive, large display arduino shield.

LCD Shield Kit w/ 16 x 2Character Display

Arduino builders often have trouble with LCD projects because they require so many pins. Using most of the pins means that the arduino would have far less components and abilities. This new LCD Shield Kit requires only 2 I2C pins on the Arduino and let’s the user control 3 backlights pins and 5 keypad pins. I really like this shield because it doesn’t need unnecessary wiring.

18-bit Color TFT Shield w/ microSD and Joystick

As I was browsing through the shields I realized I really liked the more visually stimulating shields. I liked the shields that enhanced image or character display a lot. For example, this 18-bit color tft shield allows the user to add a small colorful and bright display to any arduino. There is a microSD card slot and a 5-way joystick navigation switch included as well. I think these visual displays really show how the arduino is like a mini computer.
