Step 1: Hardware: Main Parts
You'll also need a monitor which you can connect to the Pi. Preferably this should have HDMI, but I was able to use a HDMI > VGA converter and get away with using an old throwaway monitor. If you don't have any old monitors, head to some local places, and you might be able to find some old 4:3 displays being chucked out. The quality won't be great, but it should still work fine.
Remember that if you want to mount your monitor, you'll want one that is equipped with VESA mounting holes - more on that later.
I was able to rescue an old monitor from a local school, which was really good. However, I there was one major issue - it was rather old, so looked a bit outdated; see the photo above. To solve this, I just took the monitor apart, which was rather easy, and painted the front with some black paint, which worked surprisingly well!
