Nintendo DS TFT LCD Display mod's etc...
This is my first post here, though i have been visiting instructables for quite a while now. Anyway, straight to the point. I have been searching the web for LCD controllers and drivers for the better part of a year now. My hope was to find some web source that might give me some insight on how to reuse an old, but still functional, Nintendo DS TFT LCD display. My efforts thus far have been fruitless. I was hoping that someone with greater knowledge of LCD's and or LCD controllers might post an instructable on Finding/Building/Using a LCD controller.
My ultimate goal here is to use the top LCD from the DS as a Heads Up Display/Widget Display for my PC. Hopefully connected via USB. Additionally, my dream would be to have a custom built tablet of sorts that uses the bottom LCD/Touch screen to control widgets and/or (insert media player of choice) via the touch screen.
I know this is a rather daunting task, but really all i am hoping for is a little more information from those in the instructables community who have more knowledge on the subject than i do.
