today i thought why not use a slide scanner as back on your favorite analog cameras to make them digital. thios would also give high mega pixel.

quote

It made me realise that you should take great care in what you choose - often in a cavalier moment - to place in your memory, because some things will sit there for ever, like a bad seed; like a shadow on the moon; like a crow on a fence in a dream.

LED diy lcd projector

ive always thought of lcd projectors as based on an overhead projector with full size lcd monitor screen.

but recently i realized there is another way to do it.
using a small lcd monitor sub 3″ and equipment salvaged from a slide projector plus an ultra brite LED you can make an ok projector for relatively small money.

here is an instructables on how to do just that:

when building such a device you have to get your hands on some ultra bright leds.
for example a 50 w LED
or a 100W LED
