ChibiMo is a DIY PC monitor display that is based on popular dot matrix LCD and AVR or Arduino. The device works as a secondary (or thirdly, fourthly, ...) monitor for an Windows PC, so almost anything that shows up on a PC display will also show up on ChibiMo.
ChibiMo can be built either with a DIY hardware with an AVR microcontroller or an Arduino board. The Arduino-based model is designed to be very easy to build so that everyone who can do a little bit of soldering can build it.

I also designed a special shield for Arduino ChibiMo.
The shield is for sale at occasional exhibits.
Please check the website top
for what exhibits I bring my projects to.
Both models are functionally equal. They support multi-monitor and mirror modes. They have multiple color modes including perfect black-and-white mode and pseudo grayscale mode, which is realized by quickly switching a dot black and white.
The picture below is two ChibiMos in operation in mirror and 8-color pseudo grayscale modes.
