Hardware, Embedded Systems "What is great about this panel (except its resolution) is that it has an eDisplayPort interface (which is supposed to replace LVDS in the near future), and as this hack proves it is compatible with traditional DisplayPort outputs found on all modern video cards. The panel is also surprisingly cheap - I got mine on ebay for $55, shipped from China. Hoping that eDisplayPort is compatible with regular DisplayPort (I couldn't find conclusive proof of this), I went on to interface the panel with a DP cable." Cool.

In Car?

I love that one of the comments on the site says they'd like it in their car dash!

Isn't an iPad screen a bit big for that?

Anyhow, love the concept. Would be perfect for a small study PC in the spare room or something, or use as a home jukebox controller. Nice.

For what it's worth, the Tesla Model S has a 17" touchscreen in its dash. Some of the only complaints I've read about it is the fear that drivers will be distracted playing with it instead of driving.

When the iPad first came out, putting whole iPads into car dashes was actually a thing.
