Thoughtful Design. Fine Craftsmanship.

Elegant milled and formed design

Moddable Display is designed to look great in your home or office. Each Moddable Display starts as a polished acrylic blank that is milled and heat bent into an elegant and flexible form. A Moddable development board is mounted into Moddable Display's front surface. A rubber base gives them a secure footing.

Expandability

The open back of Moddable Display shows off its developer side. There's lots of room for any additional sensors or components your project needs and easy access to the expansion pin header. The open back is ideal for environmental sensors like temperature, humidity, ambient light, and air quality.


Portrait. Landscape. And Beyond.

Whatever your project's display needs, Moddable Display has you covered. Thanks to clever industrial design, every Moddable Display operates in multiple orientations. Both portrait and landscape orientations are available for rectangular Displays. For highly interactive touch screen projects, the unique touch orientation delivers maximum stability.

Cable Routing

Moddable Displays with a touch screen integrate a routing guide for the power cable into the base. The guide directs the cable straight out of the back to help keep Moddable Display in place during touch operations.

Moddable SDK integration

Use industry standard JavaScript to create your Moddable Display projects. Build your UI with our professional Piu user interface framework, Commodetto graphics library, and Poco renderer.

Communicate with devices and cloud services using HTTP, MQTT, WebSocket, and more. Comprehensive BLE support includes both Central and Peripheral roles.
