Yup, thought someone will beat me to it!
It is amazing what people are willing to do just to prove something, i am fairly certain that no one will use either of them, but it is nice to have. Here an RPI3 and that 3.5" screen set me back 104 euros plus 3 for transport and 2 for the delivery driver so he can have a coffee ( a coffee here costs 0.5 to 1 euro in every cafeteria or restaurant ), for that money i can get a very good used PC with at least a 22" monitor !

emclcd was a fairly reasonable proposition. It was intended to work with this type of LCD, rather like many 3D printers do:

This was before you could get tiny full-colour touchscreens. I can still see an application for this in single-purpose machines.

I can see the uses for it, although these days the price difference between 4x20 and a 480x320 displays is small.
