LCD Frame

    I'm working on an LCD frame hacked out of a Mattel JuiceBox ($11 at Wal-mart). The 'Box runs uclinux and accepts MMC cards.

      Did some research, found that the device is made by Emsoft, and they provide the source at their site. How to telnet into it is still a mystery to me...

      how the hell did you get it for $11? promo? incorrectly priced box? MAKEing your own UCP code stickers? greping walmart's website now shows a minimum price of ~$50.

      Does this hack involve modifying the hardware? I don't mind, but I hope that it's kind of easy. I went out and bought a Juice Box today with the hope of doing this project as well - are there any step-by-step instructions anywhere, or do we wait for the next issue of Make Magazine? Thanks!

      are you planning on providing some kind of a how-to on doing this?

      i was able to get two off of ebay for about $20.

      I'm curious. How much tinkering is really needed? It can already play photos using SD cards with the adapter. Couldn't you just stick a frame around it... what am I missing? I ended up buying one for $10 w/ free shipping from ebay and the mp3/jpg adapter kit for it for another $5. I figure I'll try to see if I can do this. If not, at least it was only a $15 investment and it would still work as an mp3/photo player anyway.

      Are there any updates on this project? A tutorial or something of the sort?

      Can one connect a PC to this display through VGA?
