New LED display add-on slips over the GPIO on the Raspberry Pi – Kickstarter

David Meiklejohn from Gooligum Electronics has just launched a Kickstarter for their new add-on board called the Joey. The Joey slips over the GPIO pins (without a header – it’s all done with friction, similar to the Ryanteck Debug Clip) and sticks out to the side and provides you with an I2C-controlled 8-segment, 4-digit display. This has many uses, from displaying your IP address to providing sensor readings. Earlybirds are currently available at $11 which is great value for something so useful. Take a look at the Kickstarter here or watch their video below:
