DIY digital photo frame this week points to a great idea for converting an old laptop computer into a digital photo frame (Popular Science). I happen to have a working late 90s vintage laptop sitting around gathering dust that I am going to convert. I’ll be sure to carefully document the entire process so that I can provide a bit more instruction than the Popular Science article did. Look for it in the coming weeks.

  1. cool! I’ll be looking forward to seeing its progress. I would like to try it out myself, but I don’t have anything like that lying around here- so I’ll have to live vicariously through your trial and error 🙂
