DIY HACK – How to make a Wireless Wall LCD Digital Photo Frame

Here’s a nice wireless wall digital photo frame howto.

A quick search of the web turned up several do-it-yourself articles by photographers that had built their own digital frames – typically from discarded laptops. The laptop based digital frames have larger screens (10” to 15”), and tend to be reasonably inexpensive to build (provided you own a discarded laptop).

The laptop projects that I saw had a couple of common issues, however. All of them involved taking the laptop apart completely and ge
