This is so cool…Phillip cut a video cable and brought out the i2c lines that are used to transmit/receive data from the monitor/display. (I guess that’s how well designed drivers know the resolutions available)
Some drivers let you poke data onto this bus, so you now have a way to communicate with i2c devices (like, say…a wii nunchuk). PC’s also have an onboard i2c bus for sensors, which I mentioned in my blinkM post.
