This is a proof of concept for using a small graphical LCD with the ST7565 chipset as a character device in Linux. So far, the code has been tested on a BeagleBone Black running Debian 7.0 (Wheezy) connected to this LCD.
A BeagleBone Black is going to run the Qt5 TCP/UDP server on MyzharBot for remote control.

This is my entry for your beaglebone black case contest. Its actually the same wiring as your Pi LCD plate but I used a 8×2 display.
