Drawing On an OLED with an ATtiny85, No RAM Buffers Allowed

See the original posting on Hackaday

Small I2C OLED displays are common nowadays, and thanks to the work of helpful developers, there are also a variety of graphics libraries for using them. Most of them work by using a RAM buffer, which means that anything one wants to draw gets written to a buffer representing the screen, and the contents of that buffer are copied out to the display whenever it is updated.

The Tarah Pros are set to be the first in a new line of “Pro Series” products from Jaybird, designed with the more demanding needs of professional athletes in mind. To that end, the Tarah Pros look similar to the entry-level $99.99 Tarahs, with a similar barrel-shaped earbud. But there are plenty of differences, including the biggest new addition: a promised 14-hour battery life, far besting the six hours Jaybird promises with the Tarahs or the eight hours on the X4s.

I am distinctly not a professional runner, but I took the Tarah…
