$20 bucks = 2.5" LCD (Perfect for game previews?!?!?)
« on: February 16, 2008, 08:29:52 am »
Browsing around some of my favorite sites I found this..

http://www.warrantyvoid.us/cyberhomedvdplayer.html

20 bucks gets you a modable portable dvd player with a 2.5 inch screen. The mod shows you how to add a composite video feed to it. Well, couldnt someone write up something that spits out whatever you want (game previews, button layouts, instructions... etc.) to a second monitor (this little guy) and you could mount this bad boy about anywhere (left or right, above or below monitor) heck you could mount it into the control panel.. dunno but I thought it was a cool hack for 20 bucks.. giving you a 2.5 inch display (sure its kinda small but its the overall wow factor when your done)..

anyway let me know if anyone picks one of these guys up.

I was thinking about something like this just a couple of days ago. . .   "Wouldn't it be neat to have a tiny LCD screen that shows the control layout for the current game?  Kind of like an electronic instruction card."  Then I looked into what kind of LCDs were available, and the cost and hassles didn't seem to make sense.

I still probably won't fool with it myself, but I hope somebody else does.  I'd like to see that.
