lcd.jpgEarlier I had mentioned I ordered one of the GameOptic devices from ThinkGeek. It arrived, and wow, I really like this USB LCD info-gadget. Here are some pictures of some of the things it can do. I hooked up my web cam and set it to upload pictures to Flickr when someone messaged me (photo). There are about a dozen other projects I’m going to do with this little guy and the developers of product have been really receptive to more ideas and hacks.

    I think it’s pretty cool and have a few ideas. It would be nice if it had non-Windows drivers or if there were at least specs.

    Nice. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a software version that would just send it by SMS to my phone, so i can get these notices anywhere and perhaps for free. Is there something like that? I guess you can install a mail server and a few hacks to trigger messages.
