Recently the digitizer on my galaxy s6 was damaged, got a replacement (digitizer) that failed quickly, got my money back and for an extra $50 I got a new phone, leaving me with a perfectly good phone & camera, but no screen to control it with. Not interested in spending another $150 on a digitizer, but would like to put the camera to use. I have little idea if this is possible, or how to approach it but I am open to suggestions. Here are the few little ideas I have:
-some sort of emulator connected to a computer -pull the camera itself out & connect to an arduino board (this seems more plausible, but would require encoding software (all the stuff in between the raw video data & the mp4 or whatever)
couple other things: -size / tethered are irrelevant as I intent to use this in my shop (no need to be portable, although it would be nice).
so please share your ideas & point me in the right direction.
