TinyScreen: A color display the size of your thumb

Written by

Ken Burns has started a kickstarter for a device he has created – a remarkably tiny display called… wait for it… Tinyscreen (not the most imaginative name, I agree). TinyScreen is a tiny customizable display. It allows you to play games, get notifications from your phone and display useful information – all on a tiny little screen. Super impressive, yes?


TinyScreen is the new way to visualize your environment. With a beautiful color OLED display, TinyScreen is designed to be used to display information from the TinyDuino platform, which stack together like little electronic Lego’s.

With TinyScreen there are several default apps that will work right out of the box – like a Smart Watch app, a Video player app and a video game app. You can use these default apps with NO PROGRAMMING AT ALL!
