Thread: Sexy Bunny Project

  1. #1

    Default Sexy Bunny Project

    I am embarking on my first case Mod. Below is a drawing of my proposed case.





    I have acquired a 128x64 Graphic LCD and I am currently experimenting with it using LCDHype



    After several hours of wire stripping, soldering, desoldering, more stripping, more soldering and Vodka and Cranberry cocktails, I managed to wire up this bad boy and fire it up! (literally, it's a good idea to take heed to manufacturer specs as to recommended current. My power supply apparently pumps out some serious amps. I stupidly connected all power lines to LCD without limiting resistors. It heated up real fast and distorted the screen, but after a couple of minutes of cooling down all is well. USE RESISTORS when connecting to power supply!)




    Oh, the beauty!




    mmmm




    Next on the agenda: Paint case, create mount and bezel for LCD. Oh and clean up wiring.

    I just ordered a new digital camera (it's about flipping time) can't wait till it gets here so I can take some pictures that will do this project justice





    Cost so far:

    LCDHype: free http://www.lcdhype.de.vu/

    128x64 G-LCD: $31.55 ($27.50 for module + $4.05 for shipping) Solid Glow Technologies www.solidglow.com

    Total: $31.55

    Laser cut so it will be perfect. I don't think I can craft something like that by hand.

    do you realize how utterly easy that would be to cut out with a jigsaw?

    Looks good. I think I might get one of those LCD's for my case, are they easy to program? And why is your picture on that web site?
