    10.4" Lilliput Vertical Install Complete [Scion tC]

    I rarely post around here, but I've finally finished something I've deemed worthy to post in the Fabrication forum - my vertical oriented 10.4" lilliput touchscreen in my Scion tC





    Here's what it was before that.




    I've relocated the HVAC to the center console [video below]
    The skin, which i created from scratch, is running on Centrafuse.
    the HVAC has been integrated into the computer via an Arduino chip.

    Here are some shots of the skin





    And here is a video I put together to talk about the skin, screen and hvac relocation. Fullscreen it and sound if you can.

    Thanks guys!

    Excellent job on the skin as well as fabrication.

    Would you mind sharing this custom skin as well as more details on how you've gone about interfacing the HVAC with the computer via Arduino.

    I could share the skin, but its only fleshed out far enough to what I use in centrafuse, not the entire skin + it's only built for a vertical screen - so most people would find it useless.

    the hvac is written in the arduino language as well as visual c. really basic actually, press a button on the screen, send a signal out of the arduino to the actual existing hvac controller board to simulate a button press and viola. its all hard wired and kind of a hack, there are probably better ways to go around it but our knowledge only expands so far with this stuff. glad you like it!

    Many thanks!!! I guess it should still be a good reference for people who is planning a vertical install. There aren't many vertical skins to start with in first place.

    Excuse me, but that's incredibly... Schweet! Nice.
    Play with it, 'til it's broke.
