Hand mount strap

I found...

GoPro mount gloves like this:

Self heating ones like this:

Flashlight holding ones like this:

And a quick release one:

Always-on display

I think, for design consistency, I should go with a square display:

There is also the idea of going with a long, rectangular one so that the screen could be angled towards my eyes (if the square one would stick out too far):
I also discovered that there's apparently a colour memory LCD in existance and it's not even that expensive, so I'm most likely going to go with this:

Main square display

To share parts and research with #T^2 TyMist [gd0138], I think that using the same square screen is the best choice. This could actually be like a project collab with myself, where I can skip past the expensive, off-the-shelf control board for TyMist because I made a custom one for TimerSpy.

This screen can go up to 120Hz and has 300 nits of brightness. There is also a much cheaper alternative version that only has 150 nits, but that's because it was tested has a 10% backlight duty cycle (something done to reduce motion blur in VR)

Solution mining... ends, in 29 days.
