I2C Quad 7 Segment IP Address Display I2C for Raspberry Pi
IP Display Dongle I2C 7 Segment for Raspberry PiThis cute little dongle can be setup to display the IP address of your Raspberry Pi on boot up so there is never any problem knowing how to SSH or VNC into the Pi remotely.
We supply the simple Python program and show you how to set your Pi up to automatically start it on boot up. The program is easy to change so you can either show the whole IP address, or just the last 3 digits if you know the sub-Net it will be on. The program as released shows the IP address for a minute or so, then shuts down - at which point you can simply pull out the dongle.
The dongle is designed to fit directly into the standard I2C sockets provided on 4tronix robotics controllers. However, you can connect to any I2C output using suitable jumper wires
Supplied fully assembled.
Of course, this is just a 4-digit 7-segment display - you can display on it whatever you like. It doesn't have to be the IP address.
