Making Digital Signage in the Maker Hub

screen shot of Maker Hub Manager Don Undeen with Digital Signage

Whether you want a hangable slideshow of family pictures, informational signage for your office, a "digital frame" for Net Art, or a custom display of useful information at the start of your day, sometimes it's great to have a cheap, single purpose, all-in-one screen that you can mount anywhere and leave running for weeks at a time.

In the Maker Hub, we've been using old LCD computer screens and Raspberry Pi computers to make DYI Digital Signage.



Thanks to Wilmer Hale for donating the LCD screens, and Cable Matters for the HDMI-VGA Converters.
