Upgrade Your iPod Nano's Screen The Retro Way
It seems like there's no limit to just how miniature our audio and video devices can be these days. You may remember when we reviewed the MobiBlu MP3 player that's a 1 inch cube with a video screen on one side. That's a bit small to watch comfortably for any length of time, a complaint I'm hearing about the tiny iPod Nano's screen. It's difficult to watch long videos at such tiny proportions.
The video above shows one user's clever take on the problem. He hacked an old 35mm slide viewer, added a pair of internal speakers, and now his Nano is part of a mini-media center. It's a clever solution, and when he opens the case so you can see what's doing inside, it almost looks as if the slide viewer was born 30 years ago just to house the iPod.
