Any use for 17" lcd laptop screen??

I had an old laptop that broke in two.. i.e. the screen in one piece and the keyboard section in another. I just wanted to know if there was any project i could use the 17" lcd screen for?? i am a complete novice when it comes to electronics but having looked at some of the projects on here it has inspired me to do something of my own. So if anyone has any ideas for me please get back. Basically the i have a screen and one "wire" coming out of it.

Make your own projection TV. I was trying to find Popular Science's version of Lumenlabs project, but no luck yet. . .
Do you mean this?
That's it! Simple, yet awesomely awesome.
