A few friends and I came across this project we’d like to give a go - something a bit fun to each have a go at:
Its basically a small TV powered by a pi-zero. I was super keen to support an Aussie retailer and try and get the entire parts list from Core. Luckily as its a printed project, we can sorta modify the print/housing a little to suit slightly different sized components (the screen!).
I’ve put together the list of parts below so far - but I’m after some help to find;
a suitable screen - the project owner uses a 640x480 2.8inch TFT.
USB Type B Standard Micro Port Male
If anyone has any thoughts on better part combos i’m all ears as well!
Hopefully we can source it all from Core and support the locals!
That screen will work with a Pi Zero as the 40 pin GPIO is the same in all models of Pi, but it is sized for a model B style Pi so the bottom of the screen will overhang the Pi Zero and may need support. The top two mounting holes should still line up though.
