In this project, we're going to make a DIY monitor using an 7" HDMI display backpack and a 3D printed enclosure.
This display monitor is very helpful as a second display for a computer, camera and of course a Raspberry pi. The Adafruit HDMI 7" display backpack features an integrated mini display driver that is great for DIY projects. It's fully assembled, works with any HDMI device and includes mounting tabs for easily attaching to a surface.
