Led And Lens0Raph writes “Since the first time I saw a projection clock, I knew one day I would build my own by converting a watch with an LCD display. Last week, I bought a watch in a dollar store and managed to convert it to a projection clock. I can finally project the time on my bedroom ceiling.” Link.

    fstedie: people who say that won’t make a neat hack/project themselves anytime…. it’s not the money, it’s not always the need, it’s because you CAN!!! It keeps the mind creative, it gets you experience in certain fields, it even can bring you to a next level of consiousness sometimes.

    So it is more a keeping-you-busy-while-entertaining project than something new or inventive. Maybe you can scale the shit to other proportions. Maybe take a 100 dollar weatherstation with LCD and project that on a wall. Who knows? It is FUN!

    You could use this idea to modify anything with an LCD display. I’m thinking one of those flash drive MP3 players displaying it’s playlist on the wall while playing through an amp. You could also get some filters to make the display different colours.
