So right now I’m putting together parts for a project I’m working on. Which requires a small touchscreen.
I’ve got 3.5 hyperpixel touchscreen and it is by far the best touchscreen for its size I’ve seen but there’s one rather substantial problem.
It eats up the entire set of GPIO pins on the Pi. It’s not even that it just sits on them it seems to actually use all of them. This means you pretty much can’t do anything else with the pi unless its USB based.
So I’m wondering if there’s a way around this problem.
I have another touchscreen slated for another project of mine and it connects to the Pi via the HDMI and USB ports.
Anyone know if theres any way to achieve something similar with the hyperpixel screen?
If Pimoroni took it upon themselves to build some manner of conversion kit for their screen I’d be quite happy to pay 10 or 20 pounds for it.
