Well that is a cool idea.

 

So this is an extension/add on to an earlier successful Kickstarter campaign that these guys had 2 years ago with TinyDuino of a extremely small screen.

Pretty cool Kickstarter

Saw this the other day. The first thought I had was how the hell can a screen that small be any use besides telling the time and giving short notifications? It's too small, at least from what I've seen, to be any more practical than that.

I'd ask "why...?" But then I'd probably get the age old response of "Why not?".

Reminds me of some ridiculously tiny cellphones in the 90s when that was the trend

its an arduino based design so nope

 

Now if we could only know the battery life and can we use our own batteries.

well as long as its in the specs (so 3-5.5V) and can supply the current needed, then i dont see why not.
