Back in the day .. this was the future... ;-]
Any way one of these models manged to become an orphan in my workshop,and nobody wanted the poor guy...
So i started thinking, unscrewing...


This is what i had to work with...


Nice 16:9 lcd screen.. Luckily 2.5inch HDD technology..
Basically its guts on a plate :)


After allot of unscrewing, taking things apart, measuring and pondering. I went down to
my local art gallery and my best friend made me an amazing frame!
Whoa this is what i landed up with..


Shweet...



After a few hours of soldering, tinkering, breaking other parts, glue-ing and more tinkering..
I have a beautiful Google Slideshow photoframe that download pictures from any RSS Feed ;-)
Shweeeeet....



This is how the i gave this sony a new home and a great purpose..
Im not done yet.. i have few more software tweaks and ill post a video..
