Mike Rankin created this adorably small WiFi-connected color OLED board:

ESP8266 Color OLED

I’ve been keeping an eye on the SSD1331 library to see if it would eventually work with the ESP8266 wifi modules. I noticed the support for it appeared one day with the Adafruit library so I tried it out on my Adafruit Hazzah and success!

miker has shared the board on OSH Park:
