Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
That's a very good point you make about the house's end-point - it would indeed need another micro there and the Blue Pill boards don't have native USB connectivity. Sure, they've got a micro socket, but you'd have to find a software stack to do the talking.
Didn't even think of that. I'm claiming blindness due to the array of sub USD$10 of screens I've got sitting around here. The 320x240 touchscreens were about 30 aussie pesos for the pair of em, conveniently coming with a 128mbit spi flash chip too (which wasn't mentioned at all in the listing)
I think back in horror to my uni days, when we were expected to make a system around a Motorolla 68k cpu. This stuff is so easy and cheap now. 2 or 3 bucks is what an sms capable kit cost me (just have to solder the parts to the board)

Sounds like we may each have an interesting article to write. Big Grin | :-D
