I just received a bunch of those really cool QDSP-6064 Bubble Displays and I had to build something with them right away.
I quickly tried it using the sample code and, as I was doing that, I immediately wanted to build a small device combining this display with a femtoduino and a small LiPo battery. I ordered two Femtoduino quite some times ago but never did anything with them. I knew they would come handy one day. Then intent of this build is to eventually make something wearable.
For the sake of making it look nicer, I picked only red wires to match the Bubble Display look. I also took the time to keep everything as flat as possible, trying to get a compact build that could be turnded into anything. To make the sample code work with this new build, I had to tweak the code since I was forced to connect the QDSP-6064 pins to different Arduino pins.
There nothing fancy about this build so here is the result:
Next step? I might order an Rfduino, which is smaller then the femtoduino and have WiFi built into it. So many possibilities...
