Previous Post Subject: TFT LCD and NearIR Camera Modules on the RPi

This post we will cover input and output hardware.  The PiTFT LCD output device will be used to display the near infrared camera input.  We’ll cover how to uplink to Dropbox.  This will be a lead in for augmented reality in later posts.  The PiTFT will require software to setup, here are the steps.
