|Seattle conference will also discuss ePods, Websurfers, Acer NT-150s, etc. (modified 0 times) ||kesh314|
|I pulled this from the bottom of the thread regarding the Seattle conference, since those who aren't interested in the IOpener may have missed this:|
There has been some interest in discussing/demonstrating other hackable hardware during this conference. So it only seems logical to encourage individuals who want to talk about this hardware to attend and bring their hardware.
Therefore I'd like to amend the purpose of the conference to also talk about this other hardware. The focus will still remain on the IOpener, and that is what most of the time during the conference will be spent on, but I'd also like to discuss and demo other hardware such as an ePods, an Acer NT-150 (set-top box, that can be used as a nice/cheap MP3 jukebox), and two other personal projects I've been working on:
1)black NLX videoconferencing boxes
--I'm putting together 2 boxes specifically for the purpose of videoconferencing using ones camcorder and TV over the internet. These boxes basically consist of a 366MHz Celeron processor, 64 MB RAM, Win98SE and an ATI All-in-Wonder video adapter (this has both video-in and video-out). Video conferencing is accomplished by using Netmeeting or Windows Media Player/Windows Media Encoder.
2)Wireless NTSC transmission (similar to the X-10, but cheaper and much higher quality, as you'll see)
I have hacked together a 2.4 GHz wireless transmitter that can be connected to a camcorder's RCA Audio and Video-out signals. This allows a completely wireless transmission to a base receiver, that would be hooked up to a TV. For small camcorder that fit in ones hand, this is just a neat toy to be able to walk around a room with the need for RCA cables to transmit the signal to a TV!
I will bring both of these devices (plus an Acer NT-150) with me to the conference and demo them towards the end.
