Any one know if there is a screen out there that is the same size as the tiny shields that I could use with my project.

So 20mm by 20mm or jsut a bit bigger is fine as well.I it operated at 3v3 volts that would be amazing as well.

This one is 3.3v / 20mA. It is 28mm x 28mm, so slightly larger than what you want: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/COG-C144MVGI-08/153-1146-ND/2523706

This one is slightly smaller, but might need a little more effort on the programming side (also wants 3.5v for the backlight instead of just 3.3v like on the logic pins): http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/NHD-12864WX-T1TFH%23/NHD-12864WX-T1TFH%23-ND/2165862

If your pockets are deep, then there are also these which all seem to be in the size range you are looking for (although not very thin): http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?FV=fff40008,fff80276,ffec322b&stock=1

Lastly, there are a couple of displays from Adafruit which might be suitable. They tend to be slightly larger than 20x20, but maybe that is OK for your needs:

None of those screens will have the Tinyduino connector - you would probably need to make a small board for any of them, or possibly wire it up to a Tinyduino Protoboard.

No, I have not. I would caution you though about relying too much on the images shown in those listings. The one with the fish photograph looks very suspicious to me. I think it was photoshopped. The others might be more reasonable, but still... I just wouldn't trust the product pictures.

Actually we did use one of those NKK OLEDs for an initial proof of concept and it's shown in the Kickstarter video.  Attached is a pict of this, it worked fairly well and is easy to program and the pictures are good, but it is very pricey.

Thanks,

Ken

I'm impressed. The image quality is a lot better than I presumed it would be. Almost looks like it was made to fit the TinyDuino boards.

It's actually quite tall though, which is a bit of a pain.  It also requires a high voltage for the LCD drive (think around 11 or 12V) - the orange wire on the side is running off to a bench supply, so it's not easy to interface too.

MMM looks cool may be you guys could make a shield for it ;)

I think I might end up going with this http://www.adafruit.com/products/1393.

Its small and lowish power so might work well.

Those screens remind me of this keyboard: the lcd keyboard:

will the tiny screen be usable with arduino ?
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kenburns/tinyscreen-a-color-display-the-size-of-your-thumb
This is a major question to me thanks for replying ..
I was un able to find the answer anywere
 It scares me if i by one and there will be not cheap way to adapt it it zill be a mess !

Thanks Leo .

You mean like a standard BIG Arduino? I would say no. Well you can connect the TinyScreen to the Tinyshield proto blocks:

Just buy it without the green blocks. then you can solder it to any type of arduino you want.
