View the updated project log on my personal site, XodusTech.com Hi all, Project: Xodus LookSmart PC Purpose: General media computer, internet machine, put it somewhere and it is a real small computer. Inspiration: Previous computer in panel projects and the HP TouchSmart PC Updates: 1) Adding first two inverters and testing vga connections 2) Powering LCD and testing electronics Let me introduce project Xodus LookSmart PC. The name comes from the HP TouchSmart PC, as this computer aims to produce a unit alike in nature to the TouchSmart, just minus the touch. The computer will be fully integrated to the back of the panel as you will see by the images. The board is moderately spec'd at 2ghz P4, 512mb ddr400, 80gb HDD. It has enough horsepower for fullscreen video and games like UT-GOTY and COD1. The monitor itself is a project as I was given it due to the backlight inverters being shot. More on that as the log continues. This is a double project to find alternative means of driving the display and fitting a computer in there. These first two images are teasers of the direction this project will be going in. Hope y'all enjoy. View of the back with the plastics cut away to fit the motherboard size. For this a piece of sheet metal was cut to attach to the back of the lcd and allow the motherboard to mount. Side view showing the cut away plastics and the edge of the panel. The goal is to not have to eliminate the large plastic covering the board. This will hopefully be usable for creating a casing around the rest of the motherboard. Ideas for that currently are leave it open, use plexiglass, or nice looking metal mesh. I am in the market for inspiration and ideas for where to take this project. Thanks for taking a look guys, comments welcome!
