2" LCD pocket-TV, any ideas for projects?

Rummaging through the attic I recently found my old pocket LCD-TV from the 90's. Since television in Sweden has become digital and It being of the analog persuasion I have no current use for it. What project can I use it for?
Specs are :
2" colour LCD-screen, very low resolution. Enough to watch TV or play PONG but not enough for a C64.
Composite Video input & Analog audio input (mono), via 3,5mm audiojack.
3,5mm audio output (mono)
Runs on 6v (4 AA batteries)

I nicked this image from Frank's handheld-TV pages . Thank you and hope you don't mind, Frank.

You could build a small hand held oscilloscope with it. I've seen as set of instructions somewhere.

That sounds interresting. I've looked for that to but haven't found it. Any suggestions as to search or site?

I know this is a very late reply, but I still figured I'd post a response. I live in the U.S. and bought a digital converter for my old TV. Then, a year later I found a small LCD TV at a thrift store. It has a connection for AV in. Since you too have a connection for AV in, you are in luck. You could either connect a digital converter (mine has the RCA type outputs so I could get an RCA to jack connection and use the TV in that manner. Or, I can hook it up to a VCR or a DVD player and use it as a small video player. Since I do not have electronic knowhow, I don't know if there is more that could be done by taking it apart and using the parts to make something else.

Good Luck!!!

I agree with Kevinhannan, use it as a nanny cam display unit for the kitchen with a wireless camera's receiver attache to it. The cameras usually come with a receiver that can plug into any TV just buy the cable adapter and you're set.
Can always make a peephole camera and use that as the screen on the back of the door.

A digital to analogue tv converter would be wrong here as the dac box would be unfeasibly big. I think you could use it for a wireless analogue cctv (there are loads and they are cheap, too) and your handheld tv could be the receiver...? Or give it to a tech museum?
