Poor Man’s LCD Touchscreen Breakout Board… Patrick writes –

If (like me) you like to move around when you code (couch/coffeeshop/bed/etc), then you’ll want to build a breakout board for your setup.  I soldered the level shifter IC (4050, required for 5V microcontrollers) and some stackable headers to a perfboard, then screwed the screen & perfboard onto a project box’s lid. I also added two screws to hold a full-sized arduino board in place, when it’s hooked up.

Uses our ST7565 LCD AND touchscreen AND touchscreen breakout!
