Case Modder Builds LCD Window; Causes LSD Flashbacks

In Uncategorized on December 31, 2013 at 7:05 pm

Way back when, a friend of mine and I added windows and LCDs to our computer cases. However we never tried to combine the two. If I had more money I might try this one. I think I could live with it longer than most of the case mods I see.

[Chris, aka Mosquito’s Mods]  is well-known for some awesome PC case mods. He’s outdone himself this time with an embedded LCD panel as his case window. This use of an LCD is becoming common on arcade games and slot machines. [Chris] was inspired by an arcade game he saw at a local Dave & Buster’s. He started with an off the shelf 16″ USB LCD monitor from AOC. [Chris] then stripped off the back light, diffuser, and reflectors. Left with  the bare panel and polarizers, he then created an LCD sandwich of sorts. First a layer of 2mm acrylic. Then the LCD and panel, along with 4 strips of acrylic forming a frame around the LCD. The frame strips are in blue in the image after the break.
