So I've taken some inspiration from a stream deck and decided it'd be pretty exciting to also add screens for buttons. Here's an example of my prototype setup for coding.

My end goal will actually support 9 OLED Screens but I really wasn't interested in trying to organize the wires for that so I settled for 3 for testing. These screens are pretty neat and were originally bought from aliexpress a while back so I figured I'd put them to good use finally. They're SPI based so this should make controlling them rather simple. As of right now, I'm planning to utilize the SSD_13XX Library. Hopefully this will do everything I need. If not, it seems like Adafruit also has a library that might be worth trying.

Here is an example of an array of 9 screens! Will look pretty cool when I'm driving them all simultaneously.

Needed the full throttle to finish the wiring mess for the three screens... Xbox controller and Arduino Uno for scale!
