Information Display System using WeMOS and MAX7219

May 12th, 2017 No comments

This tutorial is all about making a WiFi based information display system using WeMOS

This tutorial is all about making a WiFi based information display system. This system is built around ESP8266 but not the standalone ESP8266 instead WeMOS is used and programmed using Arduino IDE. So In this video, we will check out how to make an information display system like that using Wemos and MAX7219 based dot matrix display modules. The display system fetches data from the local/online server and displays the received. In this system, u can display any data that you want and that’s up to you however over here I am using this to display my YouTube subscribers and twitter followers count.
