The Tri-Color E-Ink Gizmo gives Circuit Playground Bluefruit the ability to display images on a bold black, white, & red e-ink screen. And since it's e-ink, the image can still be seen even after power has been turned off. Even better – you can now display images on E-Ink Gizmo by sending them wirelessly from your phone or tablet using the Bluefruit LE Connect app for iOS or Android.

This guide shows you how to:

  • Assemble your E-Ink Gizmo & Circuit Playground Bluefruit
  • Install the Bluefruit LE Connect app
  • Transfer images wirelessly to your E-Ink Gizmo & Circuit Playground Bluefruit
