LCD and Gyroscope

I am using Stone's LCD if the LCD itself does not come with a gyroscope, but I want to accomplish some functions like being able to rotate 360° to view a model on the LCD. Suppose I connect an external microcontroller and an MPU6050 module, is it possible to achieve this function?

The MPU6050 chip and similar chips are available on a module with interface PCB for Arduino from Adafruit and sparkfun from various sellers so I would say integrating accelerometers like this one with most uControllers should be possible, especially if you can find a code library and use it out of the box for development. you should look in forums specialized in the chip or programming language you are using for more application advice

note these accelerometers have either digital serial output or 3 channel Analog output. you probably want the digital ones but the analog ones might be good at making variable RGB light toys that change color and brightness as you move it around without much digital circuitry.

I can use a variety of microcontrollers, Arduino, raspberry pi, esp32 are available.

I want to implement a 3D model with 360° viewing.
