  • Touchscreen MP3 BoomboxPC Project

    as seen on GIZMODO

    it's far from finished, but i just couldn't resist posting it any longer.

    Hitachi TRK-8200HR + Fujitsu Stylistic 1200 Color Tablet PC
    currently running win98 (Debian dual-boot when complete) with MediaCar as the default mp3 interface, designing a custom skin for the 480x640 portrait display
    currently 2g hdd, increasing to upwards of 20g
    pcmcia LAN, upgrading to WiFi
    internal webcam
    4 USB (when completed)
    custom wallpaper to keep original aesthetics

    the powersupply for the tablet is internal, and wired into the outlet on the boombox, so you only have to plug in the standard AC wire for both units to get power. the tablet also has a battery for complete portablity.

    not sure if i'm gonna upgrade the speakers right away. most of what's left is building in the 4 USB ports, some bondoing, and repainting, most likely in shades of silver and grey.

    so, here it is, a work in progress...

                you even got the little not-quite-lined-up-right tape counter thing going on - attention to detail

                errr....any speakers in there though?

                  keepin' it real.

                  i still have alittle internal modding to do before i can finally install the speakers. i have to take one of the PCBs back out to install the 4 USB ports in the back of the case. i may be upgrading them as well, possibly to shielded speakers.

                  i'll try to get some more pics up soon.
