Now that they’ve all been delivered, I can unveil my latest project to my blog-reading public.  (This is a project blog, after all.)

I built two of the gadgets pictured to the right.  In a previous life, they were ancient Dell laptops.  I dismantled the computers and then nicely re-mounted them in wooden picture frames.  I installed Linux and pieced together enough opensource software to produce a slide show on the screen.  I put wireless network cards in them, so they can automatically visit this website every so often and download new pictures to display.

I gave one to my mom for her birthday.

I wrote up a few pages on the construction process.  Check it out and build one of your own!
