Can I use my old Nook as a display? And maybe even an interface? Answered

I see the HDMI screen is a little expensive. I'd like to save as much money as possible on this project.

Hm, I'm not sure! Does it have an HDMI input? Most devices like laptops and tablets don't let you pipe in a different device's brain to their display... However, you can use a television instead of the dedicated monitor.

Or, in true 'Structibles style, find an old broken laptop with a working screen, remove the screen and find the model number. Go to ebay and search for an LDVS board for the model number of your laptop screen et voila an HDMI screen for a few bucks!!
