This is an Arduino Based 5.0" Capacitive Touch display with 16 RGB LEDs for Sim Racing. The enclosure is 3D printed in PLA.
The display is a Buy Display based on the RA8875 driver communicating it with the Arduino with 4 Wire SPI protocol for the graphics and with I2C for the touch panel.

It is actualy implemented with Assetto Corsa, througth a Shared Memory API developed in C# that runs locally in the PC and send the data to the Arduino over Serial protocol, I am going to implement it with Project Cars and PC2, looking forward to move to an STM32 or a LPC, and going to add the touch capabilities to change the display layers for lap times and other data logging.
Probably in the future I will add CAN-BUS interface, so you can connect it to your car/bike.

I have uploaded the first part video, and I will post updates as I continue with the development
