Palm Pilot Mod (pocket pc mod w,e)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
First off i gotta give props to X-cubed , he gave me the idea of turning my old palm m130 into a LCD that gives out information sent from my computer. I think xcubed already made a topic on how the process works, but i thought of a cool casing to put it into and i wanted to see what you guys thought of it.

Supplies needed:

-Exacto Knife (razor blade, regualr knife would probally work too)
-A CPU box ( it must have a window on the front, i think most of them do)
-Ruler
-Glue or tape, however you want as long as you can get it together

First off I got my boxes..i had an old AMD Sempron box and my newer AMD Athlon 64 box. I was looking for a casing for my palm pilot for a couple hours and my tiny lcd screen fit perfectley in the little window of the AMD boxes. So I did some cutting, Measuring , Super gluing and a little bit of taping. And whola i got myself a casing for my lcd, i can now hang it on the wall next to my computer. (btw i first practiced on the sempron box to make sure it would work ) You can make this case without any tools if you decide not to make it smaller, i decided it was to thick so i made it about an inch wide.



The Boxes and Pocket PC



The hunk of junk





Practicing some



My dads extreme glue and my weak sauce electrical tape..(all i had at hand)



The lcd lit up



The final product...still needs some improvments, (the tape sucks @S$ i dont know why i used electrical) i will post pic updates tomorrow of how i mounted it, im thinking of using velcro to put it on the wall but if anyone has any other suggestions plz feel free to say them.

O btw I used palmorb-1.1a4 and lcd_smartie-5.3.2_final, for the Pocket programs, they are awesome u can make it say anything and also make it display many things, such as ur CPu temps,CPU speed,Memory & hard drive space (used and free). These are all open source programs so there free to the public.

Can you resize your pics please? it makes viewing a little dificult and kinda annoying with all that scrolling.

Otherwise nice mod. and looks promising.

Anyway...I'm glad you finally got PalmORB and LCDSmartie working, did you figure out what was wrong?
