Default Something cool I found

I can't find my camera right now to take a picture of it; but I found something cool when I went to Blockbuster today. But I found a picture of the exact same thing on the internet:



They were giving it away for free cause they're remodeling. The poster on it is for Shoot 'Em Up. But thats irrelevant. I'm trying to decide what to do with it though. I took it home and I can't decide what to do with it.

I'm pretty sure in the bottom part of it with the small opening I think I'm going to put a programmable LCD display. Any ideas?

It doesn't look like it was made for a display. Looks like a tape return cover.

Either way I'm putting an LCD display there, hehe. I'm just not sure what to do with the big poster part.

That'd be kinda cool if I could figure that out. Perhaps if I found a screen to fit into where the poster is suppose to be I could put up images in there. I do have a home theater so that would be kind of cool.

I thought about maybe putting a small projector behind it, (its kinda thick), kind of like a rear projection televesion but I'll have to see if thats possible.

well, if you have a computer, you could get a small lcd and hook it up to the parallel port, and there is open source software that will control it.

ya that'd be really cool if you could make a small tv type deal out of it, and then the lcd marque below could display espn scores or something
