TFT Screen

Partly inspired by Kin’s projects with digital photo frames, I bought myself a 1.5″ TFT screen photo keyring from 7DayShop to see if I could make something interesting with it.

I received the keyring in the post this morning and managed to open it up with a precision screwdriver.

(This photo was taken after I hooked it up to my laptop and put on my own bitmap image – the rest on the images were already stored on the device).

After revealing the backlight I found that the screen itself appears similar to an analogue photo slide.

The above photo was taken in between a slideshow transition.

The only issue with using this is the need to charge the lithium-ion battery via USB. I will have to test out the battery life from a full charge, and whether I can safely remove the backlight to save electricity.
