This project is a base for the Smart ID project which will feature 4D Systems' 3.2" gen4 HMI display module. The Smart ID will have a slideshow which contains QR codes for the 4D Makers website, Facebook page, Twitter page and blog site.
We used a website to generate the necessary QR codes used for the program.How it Works
Users can slide navigate to which QR code image they prefer to show on the ID.ImplementationStep 1: Build
Build the circuit as shown in the diagram.
