AIY voice hat + 3.5inch rpi tft touch display + raspberry pi3 combo possible?

Thu Mar 08, 2018 8:11 pm

Hi all long time lurker first time posting in here. Got myself a bit ago a raspberry pi 3b, and after some time following around with a generic case and software projects i felt up to delving into making the AIY voice assistant from here

https://www.adafruit.com/product/3602

but that wasnt enough for me I wanted the option to do something similar to the magic mirror ideas alot have floating around similar to this project

https://medium.com/@aallan/a-magic-mirr ... a0fea3b4d6

however there he uses it seems a different display then the one i chose to get for my case build (a personal take on a falloutesque themed terminal) using the 3.5inch rpi display xpt2046 model touch display.

My project is similar to his but the problem I just now realized after both kits arrived that I hadnt realized (till now sadly!) is that both devices need GPIO access! Is it possible for me to use this display with the AIY kit by using some wires soddered or such or is there a better idea to make this happen? If I need to buy another display like in the magic mirror project thats fine i guess but i would like to use this smaller one for the sake of the mold I got atm.

Any help would be appreciated! or if more info is needed please let me know thanks!

So an update. I finally just shelved the 3.5 in screen idea and replaced it with the 7inch that uses hdmi input not the gpio. A little more dremling and case modding for my setup and I am back on track!
