This mod was inspired by Buro Vormkrijgers Pong Clock http://www.burovormkrijgers.nl/ The screensaver is also by the same company. Virtually everything on this case is held together with duct tape, as evidenced by the rear pictures. In addition, this system can also play Space Invaders and Pac Man. Currently, I am working on a cycling system to cycle the screensavers on a predetermined schedule. With the addition of speakers, this unit can act as a fancy audio/video alarm clock. With a wireless card, it could act as a rss feed downloader as well as a PMP. Currently, this unit does not have any inputs, and is solely designed to be a desk clock. And yes, this was a waste of a perfectly good laptop, but i was bored last week.......
