So, I already had the ili9341 - pi interface board all sorted, and I thought "Hey I could make this round, it would look like a bauble!" Taking full advantage of the fast and cheap PCB manufacturing from the east, I thought it was worth a punt!!
The Pi is surface mounted to make it as skinny as possible, and there is space for 2 piezo transducers to give some sound (although you have to be really close to hear it). I currently just have it set so that it pipes a video file (currently the Christmas classic 'Elf') to the TFT screen via Mplayer. Just something fun for the holiday season :)
I could order 10 for the same price as 1, so I have some spares left over. I'm offering them to you for the low low price of just $1 plus shipping.
You are buying just the PCB, so your gonna need a few more things:

Assembly is straightforward enough, although it is a more advanced level of soldering. The components are surface mount ones, and so require fine soldering, and the TFT ribbon is very delicate. Also the pi solders flat to the PCB which can be a challenge!!

I have been on a personal quest over the past year to make projects they get the awesome pi zero in people's pockets.
Here is where you can get your hands on some of my projects to try them yourself
