LCD monitor from an old laptop screen

Just for fun, I made this contraption. Connected an old Sony laptop screen to an HDMI control board (Realtek 2660) and “voila” a 9″ LCD monitor for my Raspberry Pi.

A few more pics here.

The best part was the copious amounts of scotch tape to hold things together.

I created a programmer for the Realtek board, so I can swap the firmware with one that was suitable for this screen size.
