Connecting a LCD display to the end of a printer-cable is a simple and effective way of providing additional functionality to your computer system. The printer-cable LCD can be mounted on your computer case or fitted inside a Jiffy-Box and displayed somewhere away from your case. Even the fully functional software interface is simple to install and configure. The parts used are a non-backlit 16 x 2 character LCD and a parallel port cable(printer cable).
