Introduction: DIY Digital Picture Frame (the Easy-lazy Way)
Inspired by the "12 dollar digital picture frame" on makezine.com, I bough the Jukebox from Ebay and the connectivity kit from K-Mart.
However, I did not want to take the Jukebox apart as I was afraid my lack of craftiness will destroy it.
After an attempt to just put the device on top of a picture frame, which was deemed uttery ugly by wifey, I kind of gave up. So, it stayed unused for a couple of months, until I spotted at a garage sale just the type of frame I needed: one that would fit the Jukebox and the SD card INSIDE it.
The result is as follows:
Step 1: The Frame
This is the metal front of the garage sale picture frame. I removed the glass. I had to break it.
Be careful :)
Step 2: The Box Front
This is the box part of the picture frame. It fits the jukebox perfectly. I cut a rectangle where the screen and controls are.I placed some bubblewrap inside to prevent the jukebox from falling out, but it fits snugly insdie so it shouldn't be a problem.
Step 3: The Box Backside.
Note I cut a hole so I can turn the Jukebox on and off inside the box.
Step 4: The Final Result
This is the easy cheesy digital picture frame!
Notice I added some bkack duct-tape (taped back to back) to hide the red of the jukebox frame. You could paint your jukebox the same color as the box and achieve a better result.
We have a be nice policy.
