    The Wii U gamepad does not use any sort of common video source, so you would not be able to.

    As Ginger said, unfortunately not. However, if you want to use a Wii U gamepad shell, there are plenty of screens that accept composite/VGA/HDMI that will fit that shell just fine.

    You can use the gamepad's buttons and joysticks for it if you wire them to a teensy.

    We recommend looking through our guide hub and guide submission section for most of our "how-to" guides, if you don't find something in there, then google is your next stop. Asking generic, "How do I do this" questions are fine but aren't as productive as really researching a subject and then asking more specific questions, which we are much more likely to be able to help with.
