About the Project

Manga Screen is a small LCD screen with capacitive touch. It uses standard interfaces (USB and HDMI) for showing the picture and grabbing the data from the touch panel. That makes it compatible with just about every single board computer out there, like Raspberry Pi, Odroid, and BeagleBone Black.
