Intro: I Want to Be Surrounded by ITunes Visual Effect!

I like to see my iTunes Visual Effect listening to music.
Meanwhile,I like HOMESTAR developed by SEGATOYS.
HOMESTAR is a domestic planetarium.
It can project the starry sky of 3 meters in diameter to
It is very fantastic as if I was surrounded by the
If I combine iTunes Visual Effect and HOMESTAR,
it will be realy realy fantastic won't it?
So,I sticked a smll TFT video monitor on my HOMESTAR
by using a two-sided tape.
It might cost money, but it was easy.
Because a flashlight and a lense are already built in
my HOMESTAR and I didn't have to make a circuit to use
the product of the TFT video monitor.
I would like you to try and enjoy it!

Step 2: Stick Together
HOMESTAR and the video monitor are taken apart, sticked together with the double-faced tape.
I am not remodeling the video monitor board.
Remove the case of the video monitor.
Detach backlight from LCD. The backlight obstruct that HOMESTAR LED shines on LCD.
Put the LCD on the light.
A great event for me was to obtained the video monitor to which the LCD and the board did not stick. This is very important for you.
I pasted a plastic board because there was no place where the video monitor board
And, the video monitor board was pasted on a plastic board.
The space is necessary between the light and the LCD to focus.
To open the space, the rubber board is placed between light and LCD.
The board that put the constellation version was removed, pooley also removed ,for place where LCD is put.
Step 3: Invalidate the Safety Device
To invalidate the safety device of HOMESTAR, an optical sensor is closed with the vinyl tape.
The light doesn't light if the above-mentioned is not executed.
