Console on a old Nokia display

After a night of hacking I have the cutest console ever: fbcon on my Arietta G25 showing on a 84×48 Nokia 3310 LCD thanks to fbtft. The nice thing is it’s tiny enough to fit on my RC car but shows as a standard framebuffer so will work with everything.



There’s two versions of the display with two controller chips. fbtft required some patching which I’ll send upstream after company review.

I’m tempted to put GERTY‘s face from Moon on it while it drives about.
