LCD Glass displays

Very cool and useful LCD. 7-segment, low power, backlight. What I really like is the black segments with variable backlight instead of the more intense LEDs.

Of course, it would be very cool if there was a breakout board for it too.

Only thing wrong with those is the the tiny size.. Would be nice to have something bigger, maybe an average calculator size screen?

The tiny size is why I started looking at these. I'm working on a digital speedometer for an old car, I have a stepper moving the analog needle, but the cut-outs for odometer and tripometer are 7mm high.
orientlcd.com has a bunch of other sizes, almost all are on Amazon page (free shipping with Prime)
