Guide: Adding an auxiliary display in Windows XP

Posted on Friday, July 29 2005 @ 11:14:59 CEST by

Like some of you may already know, Windows Vista will feature a new technology to enable support for auxiliary displays. This may lead to cool gimmicks like small LCD displays incorporated in the casing of laptops to display the battery level, calendars, recent e-mail and more.

But not everyone wants to wait more than a year till Microsoft will release Windows Vista so Phillip from Make: Blog decided to add an auxiliary display (actually a PDA) to his laptop with Windows XP and the free Konfabulator program.
The real application here is for PC case modders of course, but this was fun. Awhile back we had a story about using a PSOne screen. From now on, anytime anyone wants a second tiny display for a PC, this is really the way to go, you can do the entire things for under $50 if you hunt for deals on old Pocket PCs! For you PC case modders, this is a cheap and easy way to add a LCD and for laptop owners this is a neat way to get some extra screen room for info display- why wait for the future, operating systems or devices to ship, when you can build it now!
You can find the guide over at Make:
