The LCD Mic Flag…

Decided to create a blog for various interesting projects I work on.

The first is a LCD Mic Flag…

Basically its a LCD photo frame with content coming from a SD media cart as the core wraped in a walnut wood case with a generic mike clamp…

Designed Requirements:

1) Decent size screen. Minimum of 2″ diag.
2) As light as possible.
3) Easy to use. Self contained with easy change content.
4) Easy to install or deactivate in case of problems.
5) Similar to a standard Mike Flag which is about 3″ square cube.

The hard part was finding the electronic already built. Else would have added to the designed time… Found not an exact match but did fit the requirements. Problem is the view angle is a bit odd. This lead to not making it in a std Mike Flag Cube. But with an adjustable Mike Clamp so to speak. Guess Mark II will be in a cube. Note that Video was not included into the requirements. Well thats the missing part from the frame. Mark II will have that with a remote control.

Along with the screen quirks decided to use wood. Since it going into a wood environment decides a wood case would look nice. Esp since I can get wood easer than plastic. Did find a plastic cube that could work but need to tilt. Well thats the reason for wood…

Decided to pick Walnut for density and got some that looks good.

Will be shielded for RF and EMF…

Original designed brainstorming…

Some outer along with Mike Flag Mount..

Some inside mount for the electronics…

And more…
