I am interested in making a tablet out of the Raspberry Pi, a touch screen, and some sort of case. Could someone 1. Please tell me if this touch screen would work http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lilliput-12-1-16-9-SKD-Open-Frame-Touch-Screen-VGA-HDMI-DVI-Monitor-/290846125206?pt=US_Car_Monitors_w_o_Player&hash=item43b7c7ac96 and 2. where to find a case for the whole thing? Thanks!
It wont work in the sense that it wont be portable, like a tablet is. That screen requires:
However, if you're happy to have it plugged in, I dont see a reason why it wont work. I'm not sure on how you would get the touch screen to interact with the pi though.
These are 5v, as is the Pi. If you can get a battery that is 5v, there is no reason why you cant have this portable. Charging is another issue though, you would need to find a way to charge the battery, but wouldn't be too much of a problem if you look around.
There is a youtube link there that shows the touch screen interface working and is powered by USB (like the pi). These could easily be incorporated into a case. If you find a case on an electronics website (Possibly RS, for example) you can mod it to fit the pi, the hdmi extension board, and a battery. You've then got yourself a portable Pi-Tablet.
I saw a link somewhere at work, someone created something VERY similar, powered by battery, however it wasn't in a case. I will try and find the link and show you. Hope this helps. Good luck!
I can only take a shot at your first question, that screen will work. It has the correct input options to work with the HDMI output on the RPi. The touchscreen interface normally functions just like a mouse, so that should also not be a problem.
