oooh more projects!!! i did have a look on ebay and could find a few for reasonable money. They are on the edge of being too small, and the button layout is a bit restrictive
Get a small cheep LCD in your project
Wrap it all round a battery
Or use a custom PCB to make it really small
or make it really really really really tiny!!

Is there anyone here who has looked at a project on this small machine?
Look at Kite´s Circuit Gem ... VMU#p71710

Or ... &hilit=VMU

And many more, just type "VMU" in the search

Sorry, I am extremely new with this kind of stuff and have questions about the screen.
How exactly do you solder it onto the Pi Zero, and do you have to like program the Pi and stuff im order for it to work?

Thank you!
