All Hail The Screen references internal human anatomy and the heart, as well as our complete reliance on digital screens, especially those on our cellphones. The LCD featured in AHTS is a product by an Australian company, 4D systems and requires its own proprietary 4D language to program it. The screen is nice, but I found the 4D language and development environment a bit cumbersome, e.g. images had to be addressed using binary code to load them etc. To be fair, the unit was designed for professional electronics engineers to embed into commercial products, not for makers.
I lost many days getting the screen to function properly and going forward will use Android tablets and real cellphones for the screens instead, which will be bloody awesome as I'll get audio, Bluetooth and WiFi along for the ride! I already have a working prototype of this that has 2-way communication (via the USB bus) to the Arduino-based chip, so elements within the phone can trigger actions on the board and vice versa. High res movies anyone!
