ATtiny85 and SSD1306 wearable display

How to make wearable display – OLED SSD1306 display run by ATtiny85
Step by step tutorial, with no steps to skip.
The main goal of this tutorial is to show how to make wearable display run by Attiny85 and OLED display SDD1306.
Due to running campaign for ATtiny25/45/85 PCB TINY CHEAP VERSATILE Arduino compatible on Indiegogo I did prototype of wearable display base on natural leather, to show what is possible with ATtiny25/45/85 PCB.
Soldering is not the subject of this instruct able but you can check how to do this here.

PDF of this instruct able can be download directly from here.
Step 1 – What do we need?
Step 2 – Preparing leather
Step 3 – Display preparing
Step 4 – Sew snaps to leather
Step 5 – Sew snaps to OLED display
Step 6 – Extras

Step 1: What do we need?

Basically parts needed for making wearable display we can divided for two categories.
First – part of which will be part of the final device
OLED SSD1306 display x 1
PCB with ATtiny85 on board x 1
Leather ~5cm2 x 1
Battery CR2032 x 1
Cattery Case x 1
Switch x 1
Clothes latches x 8
Second – parts which we will use to prepare wearable display
Ruler x 1
Scissors x 1
scalpel x 1
Super glue x 1
soldering iron x 1
Tin x 1
Rosin x 1
Connecting cable x 1
Pen x 1

Step 2: Preparing leather – 1

In this step we are going to prepare natural leather.
Place your display on the leather. This will give you idea how big the leather should be.
In our case it’s going to be rectangle about size 60x70mm.
Draw with pen rectangle on the internal side of the leather.
Inside rectangle draw another rectangle which fit to active area of your display.

Step 3: Preparing Leather – 2

Now it is time to place 4 clothes latches on the leather and give them right place.
With pen draw small dots on the leather.
