    Ok, so there was a time when I was trying to make a business out of fixing friend's ipods, and now I have left over parts including at least 2 ipod screens (3rd gen grayscale) and I would like to know what parts I would need to be able to connect this to a microcontroller or anything else to create a system monitor for my computer.

    On a side note, I have a few other extra old electronics lying around that could be gutted including at least 1 cell phone, and maybe some other stuff. Is there anything interesting I can do with the gutted remains of a cell phone? Thanks guys!

    All the google searching I have done has literally turned back nothing, so I don't know if its possible to make a system monitor out of an ipod screen. I might have a couple old gameboys lying around, any chance I can use those?
