Pi 7″ Touch Screen


(Edward Yeboah) #1

I have a few 800*480p official Raspberry Pi capacitive sensing touch displays. I haven’t done anything with them since I’ve decided they’re too big for what I needed them for. I’m willing to sell them for £50 each.

Edd, I’ll take one off your hands! I got a third party one that doesn’t have touch, need the whole package.

When are you next at the space? I could pop round most days and evenings.

Many thanks!


(Edward Yeboah) #3

No problem. I’ll be there in the next hour, I’ll bring it along.


(Tris Oaten) #4

Sorry! I should have said “with a bit of notice I can be there”!
so sorry. I can do tomorrow evening?


(Edward Yeboah) #5

Tomorrow evening is fine Tris, I haven’t left yet so I’ll bring it tomorrow instead.

Phew! Thank you Edd. Anytime to suit you after 5pm works for me.

I’m at the space now :smiley:

Cool, I’m in Gypsy Hill at the moment. Leaving in 20 mins!

Thanks so much Edd, the touchscreen works PERFECTLY! Even in the bootloader!

Great to meet you too, let’s hack something together soon.

Brilliant, I’m glad it’s found a caring home! I’ve had to keep the last 2, they’re too good to let go and will probably cost more after Brexit :slight_smile:

I like the idea of the bike computer, have you thought of an e-ink or monochrome display, for viewing in sunlight?


(Edward Yeboah) #12

Not bad! That’s the first I’ve seen with a decent refresh rate. The only thing is that it’s a little on the small side. I’ll be on the look out for variants of that one.

The actual tech goes up to 3.17" diagonal 320x240

Hmmm, that looks great! (I thought I had already replied for some reason).
