Instant Messenger and Skype Contact Online Notification Picture Frame

David Bue Pedersen from Volunteer Lab Rat has come up with a great way to see at a glance who is online. No need to walk up to your computer and turn off the screen saver anymore! His Online Notification Picture Frame will light up an LED behind the person who is online. The model he built has 5 pictures in it but it can handle up to 22 LED indicators!

"Don’t want to get off the couch to se who’s online on Skype og MSN? Me neither! That’s why I’ve built myself a LED illuminated picture frame that indicate who’s online on my instant messenger. I desided to make a picture frame to support five small passport sized portraits. I made a base in hardwood with two long grooves in which some sheets of polycarbonate could be inserted. I used a metal working mill to cut the grooves but a hand-held wood router should make just as fine cuts.

    Great idea if you only know a few people. I bet you could do better with like 30 little servos and an old “Guess Who” game

  10.   Picture Frame Shows Which of Your IM and Skype Friends Are Online by GizmoDevil Says:

    [...] We absolutely love it when cyberspace and meatspace intersect, which is why we’re enthused by that Online Notification Picture Frame. It’s a DIY project that connects via some interface (the guy doesn’t say) to a computer, which feeds online status data back to the display. whether a person’s online, the LED next to his photo lights up. We’d prefer it whether that were a more digital solution like an actual photo frame that dynamically displayed the pictures of folks who were online, but that is a good start.

    when I read the title I was expecting a little more software and the use of a USB lcd picture frame that would scroll through the pictures of everyone online.

    I had high hopes but this is certainly more simple to accomplish.

    Heyy. i realy dont know who i can talk to about this….

  18. ksh Says:

    hey

  19. samm Says:

    I actually have no idea what i am doing wrong but… im losing ALL my friends like so many. all my close frieneds either dont like me, or dont care anymore. and im actually really upset about it but like im hitting the point that ive got to be doing something wrong and i need to know if people have been talking to u. because like people have been excluding me. and being really rude. and i really dont know what im doing wrong

  20. ksh Says:

    like who have you lost?

  21. samm Says:

    chrisst and me dont talk.. kristen treats me so bad. colton doesnt talk to me. justin, kyle. laura. and i know ive already talked to you guys but like i feel so left out by you guys and i feeel really stupid about it. and like i dunno when i try to talk to my friends about it they blame it on me. Like krissten for example said that she doesnt want to talk to me because i pick out her flaws, so she just ditches me in hallways. and i know im pretty busy but like i have no close friends here anymore.. :(:( and i dont knowwhat to do…

  22. ksh Says:

    i dont know what to tell you honestly about those other people because i dont’ know all the details and i honestly jut don’t know. But about us…i think cuz u have lost these ppl, again, u just realize actually how close the rest of us have gotten over the years and it is nothing out of the ordinary for us to be glued to each others side

  23. samm Says:

    i know but like. i dunno. i used to kinda be included and now. like. people used to talk to me. and now people like whisper around me like im not allowed to know anyhting. and it actually hurts SO bad.

  24. DigitalMind Says:

    What the hell, do you guys think this is a chat board ? I apologize on the off chance you’re actually the owners of this site, but I see these chats almost every night here. Find a different way to chat. There are lots of alternatives even if you’re at school and they restrict sites you can go too. MSN has a web interface you know.
