  • Awesome! But...minute 7:59 you are saying: soldering. ??? In my imagination the screen would burn/melt or cook. How did you do that. The rest is very well explained. Chapeau.

  • the board costs about $240 on eBay, we can buy a type monitor 4k for the same price. pretty stupid for a build where the cost is nearly double of a ready-made type c touch monitor

    • A board + touchscreen costs $150 - $200. Just look around ebay for a bit and you'll find them

  • Remember how that brass looked before you polished it? You'll be seeing that again. There is a real good reason why plumbing fixtures are made from chrome plated brass.

  • I am looking for an external display for my iPad. It should be black and white like theses of a bookreader, such as kindle. That would give me exelent ability to read in the bright sun without draining my iPads battery so quickly. Can you make a video, how to do that? That would be really nice!

  • I'm probably never going to make this, but I like the idea, the look and your soothing voice. Also, one quick note: I think you need to explain to your american audience that the way you use the word "smart" doesn't mean what they think it means, in this context it means ELEGANT, not intelligent or high-techy, although your final product is all of those things.

The barcode for my monitor is HR215WU1-210 If anyone can help me find a short sleek board that doesn't take so much space that would be much appreciated. I've been looking for a couple of days now but I still haven't found any
