Case-Modded TV Streams Bucky-esque QuotesFebruary 23, 2012

User AUTUIN at Free Geek Vancouver took apart a Coleman TV Lantern and mounted the guts inside a 1950′s era radio. In doing so, he used the Arduino TV Out library to make the screen stream algorithmically generated Buckminster Fuller-esque quotations that are saved to an SD card.

This is a sound example of case-modding, where the builder took great pains to mount all of the components sturdily, not to mention the physical hacking of the CRT to accept the Arduino’s video stream. There’s extensive documentation of the process if you’re curious to know more.
