Yet still another nifty piece of hardware that runs with PicoGUI- This has actually been working for quite a while (more than a year) but i realized there aren't any pictures of it in the gallery. This is my wallclock- it's a 40x4 character HD44780-compatible LCD. The chip on the back is a PIC16C84 microcontroller that accepts text over a 9600bps serial link and displays it on the LCD. There's a PicoGUI video driver that interfaces with this serial protocol, so a daemon on my desktop computer runs picogui software on the clock. The left half of the screen in this example is the "lcdclock" app, and the right side is a pterm showing the last thing said in the #picogui IRC channel :)
