This works great too. This is actually the first thing I tried. the problem I ran into was that I didn't have a mini keyboard, but I did have the small remote from the Amazon Firestick.
I would say that the feature is re-use. The fact that you are re-cycling old technology that you may already have, into something new, is something I would prefer to buying new. Not only that, but a new monitor can cost upwards past $100, a LVDS board is usually $30-$50. Another good feature is that the LVDS board has options for output power and audio. You can certainly do the same thing here with one of those USB monitors you can find on e-bay but it is cost effective and better for the environment to use something that you may already have just sitting around.
the controller board does not come with a power supply, but you can buy one from the same vendor. send them an email with your lcd screen model number and they will point you to the board you need.
I don't know why not, you could use the overlay kit in place of the front glass within the frame. I'm sure it wouldn't take too much effort, you may have to modify the frame, but it should be pretty straight forward. and of course, whatever you are displaying will have to be able to use that USB touchscreen. It is a great Idea!
