nice ghetto cintiq! since I saw this I have done nothing but lurk at the bongofish forums! do you have a work log for it? I am currently modding a detal fight stick into a ps3 wireless fight stick and using that pcb to make a multiconsole fight stick... how difficult did you find that build?
Hey man, I don't have a worklog :| I can take more photos but this was my first try at it and it was remarkably easy. I took my older Thinkpad laptop (which is underneath the board) and pulled the monitor out carefully. Then I just stacked (using mounting squares) on top of the wacom tablet components (9x12 intuos 3). I had to extend one of the wires with more wire and calibrate it for a bit. That's it really.
I want to do another one with planned components and a glass top.
cool stuff! I would be really interested to see your next build if/when you get round to it, I seem to have read alot of scare stories regarding breaking the screens and breaking cables and what not... also reading alot of people struggling with jitter. I am really interested in moding myself one as i feel i can follow build logs and i know some basics when it comes to electronics... but it is a costly thing to get wrong lol!
anyway! back on topic! I am really digging the variety you have going here!
@Reale - Yeah honestly I had the laptop and the wacom just sitting there so it seemed a good time to try it. I would say the most risky part is breaking or burning out the inverter for the monitor. But that is pretty cheap to replace. I'm looking for a good (by good I mean good quality, price, and easy to take apart) monitor to strip, and thinking of using a genius tablet instead of wacom to cut costs on the next one.
Also making a case plan to CNC/ glue together but I cant until I know the components... but it's fun, if I get it going ill be making them for friends etc then thinking beyond that.
