Getting familiar with the screen and the gyroscope

The screen has arrived, and I started to familiarise myself with it's features.

I checked it's datasheet and rewied the gyroscopes features as well. Most of the time the way it's supposed to be wired is only indicated for an arduino uno, so I also have to check the pins of my ESP32 in order to understand how to wire my system.
