For a possibly upcoming educational event I am pondering using Arduino hardware as a lab platform. Based on the Duemilanove I'd need a "shield" with a graphical display (128x64 or larger) and some means for user input (a few buttons, rotary encoder).

So far I've found this: http://www.codetorment.com/2009/11/03/arduino-goodness-watterott-s65-shield-16-bit-color-display-with-172x136-pixels/.

Anyone of you seen something other than that?

There's this one too, with a color lcd and three pushbuttons. Lawicel shop in Sweden sells them, but they don't seem to have them in stock at the moment. (but I haven't used this shield myself)

Thank you, Snigelen!

(I say! Those folks from Lund, Sweden, are really nice! :wink:)

I have an order planned for Lawicel shortly, but I acrually missed out checking their Aurdino stuff out. :oops:

Keep 'em coming, folks!

Yes, really nice people from Lund :D
I had a monochrome Nokia 3310-shield with a joystick in the back of my head also.
Found it here. There are a couple of shields with pretty large touch screen color lcd's on the same site.

The Nokia 3310 display might work, although a little low in resolution for my needs.
