Picture Browser

You can make your own gallery/picture show with help of the Robot. Put some pictures in the SD card, start the sketch, and you can see them showing up on the LCD. Use left and right button on the D-pad to go the previous or next image. Press up or down to enter the "tilt navigation" mode.
