It’s funny that I had made many monitors
recently, for different situation. If you are interested about those recipe, put hand on the below link.
Here share my new monitor, a Facebook monitor.
It really feel good when you get a like from Facebook, this monitor will blink and vibrate when you got a new like. And there’s a 320x240 LCD Display to show you how many likes you ever got.
This recipe is not very complex, but may a little hard for the newbie. If you had ever use Arduino or others board like that, It may cost you 3-5 hours to make one.
I had made a simple video, view to get more details.
You need to prepare something first.
We will make a beautiful and retro box to hold the modules. Download 2D file, and use a laser cutter to make your wooden board into 6 pieces.
I guess you haven’t a laser cutter at home, never mind, maybe the maker-space near form you will has one.
After the previous step, we got 6 piece of board.
We are going to make them into a retro box. We need the glue gun here.
To make it more nice looking, you can do some painting as well.
It's lucky that there're only a few electronic modules.
