iPad 2 original screen

I don't suppose anyone has managed to interface an arduino with an iPad 2 original screen have they?

I know that Apple has some kind of weird connector on the ribbon cable, but i'd really like to try and power it up and use it just as a kind of photo frame or even to interface with the PC and display things like the NAS Storage levels and network activity etc in a nice graphical way..

Anyone help or point me in the right direction??

Yes forget it.

It is not possible to do this.

I know they have gotten the iPad3 screens to work with an arduino... surely that's the same connector? unless they went back to ribbon cables in place of those stupid gold connectors??

Have you got a link to that?

OpenSource board (which you can buy seperately,) that interfaces with an Arduino or a PC via the displayport.

Thanks, interesting but I don't think your description of:-

Is quite accurate.

It is not an arduino, it is an Arduino like clone. The information they give on that page does not make much sense, there seems to be a whole lot missing, like how the display is actually attached.

Interesting, I suspect the "Arduino" element of the Oscar design is just setting up (configuring) the display to receive HDMI signals. This suspicion is made since there appears to be an HDMI connector on the board, and the microcontroller has too low a processing power for the size of display viz it may take a couple of minutes to fill every pixel!!!
