Got an old laptop sitting in your closet collecting dust? Turn it into a Digital Picture Frame!

idea by paul.smith.121

Describe your creation.


Turn you old laptop to a beautiful digital picture frame or multimedia player you can hang on the wall! Thousands of people around the world have old laptops that have been replaced and are sitting in the back of closets or close to being tossed in the trash... why toss it when you can put it to good use?

Although this is an idea I've had in my mind and wanted to attempt myself for a while, it turns out I'm not the only one out there who's thought of this! After browsing the web a bit, it turns out that this is completely possible and people have already done this and posted tutorials on how!

People are buying digital picture frames all time while throwing away old laptops as well... so why not save some money, while saving the environment, and give this idea a shot!

Awesome idea! And actually very useful. This is a true "idea for good" as many people are out buying digital picture frames as it is.
