iPad Screen for the Pi?

Thu Jan 15, 2015 1:44 pm

I'm looking for a great screen for my to-be-transformed iCade into a Raspberry Pi powered retro arcade. I remember seeing a comment somewhere that we can use a used eBay-bought iPad screen (like gen 1 or 2) and use it with the Pi.

What driver should I use that would go between the iPad screen and the HDMI port of the Pi?

No idea what type of screen the ipad uses, but you would probably have to find a converter from HDMI to whatever technology the iPad uses.
Highly unlikely you'll find one...

Do you have a link for such a screen?

Virtually impossible unless you have access to the circuit diagram of the iPad and can build a circuit board ;)
