I was recently playing around with my Raspberry Pi, and noticed an online tutorial about how to use the GPIO to print messages on a small LCD. I decided to use the LCD from the EDU05 and see if I could make it work, but failed miserably.
But this left me with the exposed EDU05, and it got me wondering if the 16 pins under the LCD could be turned into usable outputs. I know a few of the pins are ground, two are 5v power, and one is for the lcd brightness. But there are still 8 data/bus lines that could potentially be used for something interesting.
Anyone have any thoughts?
