Diamond Select TOS Tricorder Mod
« on: October 04, 2017, 11:50:27 am »
I am turning this into a working hero version. Will be putting a 2.5 inch screen and
Raspberry Pi in it. At a later date I might put a sense hat in it so it can actually be
used as a scanning device. For now it will play a couple of videos and sounds. The
moire pattern will work also. Her are a few pics ofit torn apart with a few new components
installed. Still have lots of work to do.

This is awesome!  Please give us a build list when you are done.  I have an old PlayMates tricorder I'd love to do.

Rework of internals. Pi zero wouldn't work so I upgraded to a Pi2.

Second pic  It all fits inside. Lot's of wires to straighten up.

Thanks Steve. This one is just going to play some video's on the screen. But if I actually get something I ordered
The next one will be so much more. By the way when it come to electronics all I do is connect it together and hope it works. LOL

Hmmm... much more...

Playing video clips is cool enough, but 'much more' is intriguing and... dare I???  Fascinating  :)
