RecyBling

I am a firm believer in recycling and am of course signed up to my local Freecycle group. Anything to good to throw away ends up there, but for one item I’ll make an exception… Project Bling! I’m still getting loads of visitors on that page, so someone out there can save himself a bit of work by getting the real deal. Just contact me and for the price of shipping it can be yours!

Update 19.5.2008

I’m sorry, but you are too late. The frame has been recycled

Project Bling

Ever had the desire to display your digital pictures in a frame without going through the hassle of printing them and re-framing? My inspiration came from the write up on Applefritter and I decided to take the plunge and destroy a hand-me-down IBM Thinkpad 560X in the name of science ;)

Project Bling

Over the space of a couple of days, I disassembled the laptop and carefully assembled only the bare minimum required parts on the back side of a wooden picture frame. I’m quite pleased with the result if I say so myself :)




We start off with an old laptop, and remove all the plastics to get it as thin as possible. Make sure you test the laptop after you finished.

Now it is time to slowly put everything together again inside the pictureframe.

Make sure that you can still access the vital ports on the laptop after it is closed.

Until I’ve sorted out a proper on/off solution this little stick will do just fine ;)

And finally, this is what the finished product looks like.
