Neat mini project shared by Chris Crocker-White on Hackster.io:
Build your own UK train station platform departure display (next train indicator) with live data using a Raspberry Pi Zero, OLED display and 3D-printed case – a cool (and practical!) desktop gadget. It involves a bit of software, a bit of soldering, and some 3D printing, too.
A while back I came across this tweet by Chris Hutchinson, he’d started a project to pull data from Transport API and display live train departure information on a small OLED display to mimic those signs seen on station platforms in the UK.
