      You can read or control the Pi plates then route that, via python, into the web interface to give you the graphic display.  It kinda depends on how you want to do it.  With the pi web server, anything can talk to it and display the graphics- a phone, tablet or laptop.  You connect to the pi's wireless and display the page in your browser of choice.  That page, since it originates on the Pi, can be populated with whatever data you collected via the plates or any other interface, USB, GPIO, anything really.  Accordingly, you could click a button on that page and send a signal out of the Pi to any device you have connected to it.

      This sounds intriguing will have to learn python first at present I am at the "hello world" stage, huge learning curve but......

      Hang in there, everyone starts with 'Hello World'.  Python is one of the best programming languages I have ever used.  You can do really simple stuff, a few lines, or go nuts and do complex web apps.  I love it.

      Just got hold of 2 book for teaching python to kids, "Snake Wrangling for Kids" and "Python for kids" so hopefully they will not be like the dry and boring text books that I have come across so far.   I tend to think like a kid trapped in an adult body.

      Mastering Raspberry Pi is also in the mix.

      Gee, mee too. I refuse to grow up. Grown ups are grumpy people who are always worried bout something happening. What they worry about happening, usually doesn't happen, and if it does happen, its not as bad as they thought it was going to be.

      Some wise words I have encountered over my lifetime which now sum up my philosophy on life;

      Growing old is compulsory, growing up is optional  

      Don't worry about it will never happen and if it has happened then its too late to worry about it  

      Life's to short to get wrapped around the axles over small stuff.
