With a small cheap TFT and an Arduino or ESP8266 many useful displays for your desktop can be made. Starting from ordinary clocks or weather stations also ideas like a display for the actual exchange rates, word clock, train schedule or even the time for the journey home can be found in the Internet.
But it's all the same, if your are a "maker" you can't use your inventions in the living room, the office, etc. unless you give it a professional appearance - Who like to display a "home brew" thing?
This very simple stand allows to cover your 2.4 TFT (based on a ILI9341) and a Wemos mini ESP8266 board with an appearance like bought from a gadget dealer - without any "home brew" touch.
The TFT, the ESP8266 and the two covers stick together without any glue or screws. As an example i used the color weather station of Dani Eichhorn - https://blog.squix.org/2016/10/esp8266-weather-station-color-code-published.html (Note I used a slightly different TFT, a TJCTM24024-SPI which has the same electronics but is 2.4" instead of 2.2".)
