earthmakelogoEarthMake is a brand of Earth Computer Technologies, Inc. a maker of industrial and embedded LCD products. EarthMake’s vision is to introduce EarthLCD technology to the Maker Market through special products, application and special end of life deals on LCD displays and electronics to control them. The award winning ezLCD technology from EarthLCD, is the basis of the first EarthMake product. At the World Maker Fair in 2012 we introduce the arLCD (formerly ArduinoLCD)  to  the Maker marketplace. The arLCD combines the EarthLCD award wining ezLCD smart LCD technology with an Arduino UNO for only $89. We feel that the ability to integrate a color touchscreen GUI into a project will draw more people into the Maker and Arduino marketplaces. While the first product we hope to offer affordable LCD solutions of all kinds to the Maker marketplace.
