went ahead and ordered one of these... just liked the look of it.
but cant think of what i would use it for......
Anyone got some ideas?
Use it as a minimalistic status display showing you house power consumption.
you could scroll temperature, humidity on a small package of sensors.
Maybe use it to display motivational messages to quit smoking , I d buy it
Thanks for the ideas ...I'm thinking it could be a useful for showing my swimming pool temps/pH and timer info..
Its introduced me to "codebender.cc" - has anyone used this before? Its an online Arduino IDE - im thinking it could be really good for sharing mysensors sketches??
I got a few of those little things too! Just arrived, not tried anything yet.
I plan to flip through sensor data, but for that I would need to request the values from Vera and I wonder if that is possible or easy..

I didn't but had a look at it after your post
Currently doesn't work with my chrome version, but looks interesting!
Thanks for the tip !
I have had some discussions with the developer over at codebender. We will embed codebender for all the examples on main site in the next release.
My NodeBB codebender plugin is soon finished which allows us to share code on the forum as well.
I got my microview, but have some difficulties connecting the radio.
Any ideas how that could be done considering the microview pinout above?
I am planning to use it to show graphically the messages flying around the house "heard" by a repeater or gateway node; Network topology with dotted lines depicting the frequency of messages.
I just realized by googling that the display uses the SPI interface, so connecting the radio might be impossible.. Damn.
Perhaps I need to use another arduino for the radio and microview just as a display, but in that case I perhaps would be better off with 5100 lcd display.
Why would it be impossible?
Oh so those SPIs can be connected in parallel.
The challenge is that the vias for MISO and MOSI are hidden under the screen so wiring is tight to say the least.
I have two extra microviews without bootloader and flashing that requires using those internal vias
But even doing that might be out of my league.
I could give one micoview free to someone in return for flashing them with bootloader and solving the issue of soldering the wires for the radio (SPI) so that the display still works.
