Introduction: Arduino LCD Display FlyIn Text Effect

The LCD display can be connected to an Arduino and display any text. In this Intructable I will show you how to perform the FlyIn effect of a text string.

Step 1: Details

You will need:

  1. Arduino Uno
  2. LCD display 2x16
  3. Potensiomeneter 10kOhm
  4. 220 ohm resistor
  5. Breadboard
  6. Jump wires.

You will also need a computer and a sober person to assemble the circuit and load the code to Arduino. Lets drink beer afterwards )))

Step 2: Assemble the Circuit

Step 3: The Code

Upload the attached code to Arduino (LcdTextFlyInEffect.ino)

Step 4: The Text Effect

If the circuit was assembled correctly and the code was uploaded successfully to the Arduino then you should see the string "entropy" flying in on the LCD display from left to right beginning from the last letter to the first.

You can change the "entropy" text in the code along with the rest variables in order to modify the speed and the position of the text.
