Displaying Numbers Wirelessly with XBee

We’ve given you a number of XBee Examples—coins, words, lamps, buttons scents and dials. Here’s one that’s just about numbers. A 7-Segment Numeric Display connected to an XBee radio will show any digit or letter from zero to Z. Now your project can count, spell and impress. Here’s how we put it on the site:

The XBee directly drives a simple numeric display, and that’s often all a project needs. With a simple 7-segment numeric display you can showhow many, how much, which one or when with precision. It’s a snap to display numbers wirelessly with an XBee radio.

Now you can create a counter that shows how far away Friday is, display your current Amazon or Yelp ratings, show the current flight landing at O’Hare or keep an eye on the temperature in your restaurant’s walk-in freezer.

Naturally the digits in this video were all sent to the device from iDigi, via the XIG. Check out the video to see if any number is special to me:
