Hi,

I thought I would share my project with you.

I like to have a desktop widget on my PC showing CPU activity and Memory usage but I always found these widgets spends most of the time covered by the windows of other applications.

I decided to create a project to create the typical GUI of these widgets on an arduino Mega with 3.2 inch LCD and write an app to send data to this screen.

The project works quite well. See the video below.

There are two options to send data to the arduino, one written in C# and the other written in python.

I've tested this on ubuntu and windows 10, 7 and XP.

The source code for this project (arduino sketch, C# and Python code) is available here
