Building a Frivolous Internet Connected Display with ESP32
I am obsessed with numbers, are you? Examples in the demo are frivolous but the objective is to display that numbers that matter on a tiny OLED from all over the internet(sort of)!
We will be using services like IFTTT (which did not work well), Zapier (trial plan) etc to fetch numbers from numerous services out there and show them on a tiny display. We will be using the hornbill ESP32 Minima to connect to the internet (AWS IOT). We will expose a webhook on our server to receive the trigger and then publish the message to display. Confused? Looking at the image below might help. This may not be the best appoach to do this, but this is what I could come up with you. If you can think of anything better, please do comment!
- Hornbill ESP32 Minima
- OLED 128x64
- Plastic enclosure
- LiPo Battery
