I accidently ordered an extra screen when I ordered the Touch Overlay with my Hardware Dev Kit.
So I have this extra screen laying around and I was wondering if I could use it with for example a Raspberry Pi 3 board?
I got one of these https://playpiper.com/pages/piper-computer-kit for my daughter and it has a 800x600 screen that I was thinking if I could upgrade it using the screen from LP?

I can't however find any specifications of the pins on the screen from LP?

Now, i couldnt see how the screen on the piper is connected, but i could bet that screen is an lvds screen. that wouldnt work
the LP screen is a MIPI DSI Screen. you could connect it to the pi's lcd port (because the official lcd is also running DSI). but it probably wont work.
so no, not really

I'm not sure actually what kind of screen it is, I tried to connect the cable to the port on the Pi, but nothing happened, and when I had both connected it only showed on the screen that connected on HDMI.

So I opened it up again and took a picture of the controller board.

And I can see already now that it is certainly not the same connector, But I suppose if I could find a LCD controller for the LP screen that has an HDMI input then it could work, but what should I look for?
