If you are looking for a display on the go this new Kickstarter will be of interest to you. It is an interesting collapsible display that uses a short through high power DLP projector to get the job done. It has already tipped so this will become reality. Until a paper think color roll up display is available this will be the next best thing.

“SPUD is the only high resolution, 24-inch display with the awesome benefit of ultra-portability. It collapses just like a ruggedized umbrella to the size and weight of a paperback book – making it ideal for anyone on the go.

When expanded, SPUD uses custom optics combined with the latest DLP technology to produce the sharp, bright image that you need. Either with an HDMI cable or wireless adapter, SPUD can be connected to a smartphone, tablet, or laptop – no matter where you are!”

at 9:22 pm. Filed under Electronic Hacks

 

 

The Post Apocalyptic Inventor got his hands on some cheap Yamaha audio gear. He took apart the receiver with the hopes to troubleshoot and repair the unit. Unfortunately a cap had spilled it’s guts and leaked all over the PCB corroding it very badly. It would be possible to repair but it would take a long time. If that wasn’t bad enough many of the main high power (expensive) parts were also damaged.

at 8:35 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, DIY Hacks
