The display can output full 16-bit color and connects to the Pi's GPIO port using the high-speed SPI interface. The display was designed for the Model B but works with and fits the B+, A+, and Pi 2 (there is a bit of overhang but only 5mm or so.)
The connection uses the i2C Pins (SCL & SDA), SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0), and 2 GPIO Pins (#25 & #24) leaving the other GPIOs unused. There are also connections for 4 tactile switches (optional - not included but available here) which are wired to 4 additional GPIO pins so you can make a basic interface.
The PiTFT module is supported by Adafruit.com, Below are links to the product support pages
