For my new Pandaboard, I thought it would be nice to have a little 7-inch TV to go along with it. So I got a CoolLCD 619ah miniature TV with HDMI input. Then, I got the great idea to ATTACH the two. The little LCD comes with a VESA 75mm mount. And of course, the Pandaboard has mounting holes. From there, it was simple. In Inkscape, I laid out a 120mm square with holes in the right places, then took the files down for laser-cutting to Metrix Create Space in Seattle.
While I’m at it, I also realized it would be nice to have a protective backing panel so that nothing would bash into the exposed Pandaboard and damage it. And from there, I thought I’d add a little decoration for fun.
Here’s the finished product:

Here’s the space at Metrix Create Space where we do the laser cutting. This is actually the little cutter, the big guy is much much larger.
