Anyone able to help suggest parts for a digital dogtag? Answered
I'm a first timer on the site and had a question that I was wondering if people could help me solve.I am trying to make a digital dogtag to display some text (3 or four lines in blue) and be hung around my neck.
I figure I was looking at a screen about business card size in width and trying to not get much larger than a centimeter if I can for all the components and cover. I was thinking just a simple plastic or latext shell for it would work.
My main problem has been sourcing the screen, controller and batteries to run it. Ideally I'd want a black screen that can render crisp, coloured text (or maybe even images if it can). It's also like to keep the whole package thin as mentioned above. Also, if I don't have to burn an EPROM and can interface with it in another manner that would be super awesome.
Does anyone have any experience with this or can suggest some components? I've tried looking but I have to admit my knowledge of proper components and where to look is limited.
Thanks all in advance.
