Nikolaus Gradwohl wrote in to share his little pictureframe project, which turns an old LCD picture frame into a fun animation piece:

I found a cheap digital picture frame at a local electronics store a while ago and searched a project for it. So i installed 60 jpegs with eyes looking in different directions on the pictureframe and started an endless slideshow. Now the picture frame sits on his shelf and is carefully watching whats going on in our livingroom.

It’s pretty straightforward to do, and his blog post includes the Processing program that he wrote to generate the images. Extra LCD frames are pretty common these days, but I haven’t seen them re-used in many projects… can you think of any other ways that they might be useful?
