I am planning on making a smaller MM for as a Christmas gift (size-wise it would fit in a standard photo frame) and was intending to use a Pi Zero to run the basic MMM. I am drawn to the Zero due to its smaller form factor.
If anybody has experience using a smaller screen ie. not an old tv or monitor, that can also be powered through the GPIO heads on the Pi Zero - I would love to learn from your expertise!
Alternatively, any suggestions as to a more appropriate pi model to use would also be great.
