DIY Projector


My Do-It-Yourself 1280 x 1024 px projector.

I used a 3M 1680 overhead projector, a CTX PV700 17" TFT display, some wood and 6x 6mm 12Vdc fans.
The outcome was quite a surprise! Good refresh rate, BIIIIIIIG screen but not as bright I was hoping.
Alas, I was very pleased from the performance of a ~250 Euros projector!!
