My prototype running a weather forecast using the bbc weather RSS feed.
During my first Kickstarter I was running a LCD display and a python script to display my Kickstarter project, the problem was the wires could come out and then i would have to figure out what was wrong, hence the MyPiFi LCD Support Board
With this board I can change between my LCD boards being it a 2 line LCD blue lit display, my green LCD display or my 4x20 Display.
If you would like an extra extended GPIO header to make the board sit higher as in the above picture please add an extra £1 per header needed and let me know this on your backer survey.
This is the underneath of the board, as you can see there is a hole to the left should you want to add a plastic hex to give the board extra support should you need it.
This is the top of the board, I have tried to keep this as compact as possible. As you can see this makes a great ideal add on board for adding LCD screens at a short notice or something more permiment.
So there we go, this is my Kickstarter and this is why I am now looking towards you for funding. Please help spread the word and feel free to ask any questions.
Risks and challenges
Whilst I have the places to buy the bits I need to use Kickstarter to raise the funds and get a gauge of how popular this will be. The most expensive part is the PCB Boards followed by the extended GPIO header which is a great add on to allow you to add other things to this project.
The worse case scenario is we don't get funded, in which case your pledge will not be debited from you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
