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:
