Slide Viewer LCD Screen

On the weekend, I found another awesome old slide viewer in an antique store, and decided to mount an LCD screen in it.  I was going to do it with the one I found a couple weeks ago, but I like this one better.  So, after a few hours of soldering ribbon cable, and cutting and gluing card stock, I ended up with this:

I’m absolutely thrilled with how it turned out.  I haven’t had to damage the original slide viewer at all to mount this either.

I’m using Adafruit’s 1.8″ TFT LCD for this, which talks to the Arduino over SPI.  I’m trying to get everything in Yoda 2.0 communicating over I2C, so I’m writing some adapter code to be able to call the TFT library over I2C instead.
