The 296x128 2.9 inch ePaper Display Module (#28084) is easy to add to your BlocklyProp projects. It can be used for displaying graphics, text, and images. The display portion of the ePaper module measures 2.9" diagonal, and contains 296 x 128 pixels. Each pixel can display black or white.
This tutorial shows you how to connect the ePaper Display Module to your Propeller Activity Board. Then, it will guide you through writing BlocklyProp programs to display text, numbers, and images on your ePaper display. It covers using different fonts and drawing different shapes on a black or white display.
