    ThinkPi - Old Chassis, New Tricks.

    yeah see, this thing is PERFECT for my laptop https://www.tindie.com/products/rampadc/thinkpad-usb-keyboard-adapter-v061-rev-11-pcbreceptacle/ https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-ThinkPad-keyboard-USB-adapter-with-Arduino/ But its discontinued. here's what you're looking for though : https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-USB-Laptop-Keyboard-Controller/

    ThinkPi - Old Chassis, New Tricks.

    Sadly mine uses a propriatary connector, I found someone that made a board for that but no answer from him yet. I have seen someone else made a board for this that supported 1mm and .5mm pitch iirc. I'll look for it again in a few.
  3. Update #2 is here ! xD

    ThinkPi - Old Chassis, New Tricks.

    Update #2 Display controller fitment. So I took the chassis apart again to see how the controller would fit (Did I mention how much this thing is awesome !?)(Fig.1) I had to cut a decent chunk off (Fig.2) and in the process, broke the cutting wheel on my dremmel (Fig.3). As you can see, it fits pretty well in the chassis but will require more adjustments once I get another cutting wheel (Fig.4). The grinder+drill is too crude. The board fits right in its place. it lines up perfectly with just about everything. I will however have to cap off the bottom of the laptop, as it stands right on top of the docking port hole. Furthermore, The LVDS cable for the monitor is too short (Fig.5) and will require an extention. I have not attempted to put the backlight assembly in yet, but since there's only 1 hole for cables to pass through easely, it will also need to be extended. Finally, I have tested the LCD with the Pi outside the chassis, Its plugged in the wall for now, but not for long (Fig.6) Also, I don't have a picture of this, but this board is really good. the controller for the LCD has an unused IR reiciver plug that outputs 5v witch could be (In theory) used to power the Pi. That would help a lot with the power delivery as I woudn't need a 12v to 5v converter (though those car-to-usb controllers should work well). I just don't know how much current it can put out. and sadly, I don't think it can handle a Pi. That's it for now

    Typo In Category Label

    But it makes for a good way to remember Remember, there's always a space in between In, and between. Quit being lazy
  6. Fun fact : I've had this feature for about a week or so And I hate it I want to scroll down the video and I just end up swiping to the next * Fortunatly tho, when you swipe back, it keeps in mind where you stopped *
  7. ThinkPI  Update 1
    The display works !!!

    ThinkPi - Old Chassis, New Tricks.

    Update #1 See with your own eyes ! I got the display controller In its neat little package. (Fig.1) And holy shit it works ! Now you see, I was a bit scared at first, since the connector didn't match the one on the ribbon cable of the whole monitor unit. After some more digging and dissasembly, I found out that the cable in question is also used for the top led, the backlight (more on that later) and the activity led on the bottom. The actual panel connector is right smack in the middle of the panel, on the back. So I connected it ! and it.. wait.. does it work ? hard to see... (Fig.2) Oh ! Right ! The backlight ! You see, the backlight is controlled separatly from the display connector. the power for it comes from the separate board of the activity led (sounds weird, but the backlight is at the bottom, next to that board) and I then realised, wait ! there's another board with the controller that has a plug that oddly resembles the backlight's cable ! (Fig.3) Finally though, It works. (Fig.4) And its flawless ! (Fig.5) And a great step forward to the completion of this project. That's all for now Next up : Keyboard or Power Edit : Oh right, I should maybe mention what the thing does. Other than convert HDMI, DVI or VGA to the LCD's thing, I can also use speakers through it and use the AUX input too. So the audio can go : Pi > Controller > Speakers Or : Pi > Controller > Headphones / External I have to adapt the included speakers though, the 4 pin plug is too small for the one on the controller, but I'm sure it will be fine. This board does take a lot of power though, 12V 3A. That's about a typical laptop charger. so its going to need a beefy battery.
  9. Ever been so sick you've forgotten what it was like to breath normally ?

     

    I have never appreciated breathing so much

    ThinkPi - Old Chassis, New Tricks.

    Project ThinkPI Ohai You might be wondering, what the heck is this title ? is it a ThinkPad ? Did he mean ThinkStation ? What's with the Pi ? Can I have some ? NO.. you can't. This is a little project of mine, where I will take this old 2007 T61 Thinkpad, gut it, hack the heck out of the frame, and shove a Raspberry Pi 3b+ in it ! you may wonder. Is this possible ? will it fit in ? what about the display ? the keyboard ? how does that all work ? Well, this is where this goes from a simple computer, to a true project laptop. Why I want this : I've been doing some fun stuff with an SDR, or a Software Defined Radio. witch lets you do tons of stuff with radio frequencies (receiver only for my unit) I can listen to ATC, the ISS (given I have a proper antenna) and the real purpose of this : Weather satellites ! So then, I wanted a Pi to run this at first, small, compact, powerfull. but then I realised, I need a monitor, keyboard, storage... Yeah, I could have took my existing laptop.. but I already had a PI I bought a PI ! And it woudn't be as cool without one. Tons of people have done "Pi laptops", but they are mostly either 3d printed, thick and flimsy, or they're platic kits that are super tiny, and quite frankly unusable. Project Milestones : Gut it Gather components Get the monitor working with the Pi (potential deal breaker) || Works as of Jan 14th 2019 Get the keyboard working with the Pi (Has been done before, though most of the projects I've seen are abandoned, even the most recent ones. Power Fit it all in Components : Raspberry Pi 3b+ Nooelec NESDR SMART Software Defined Radio Thinkpad T61 Corsair Force LS 114gb Sata2 SSD Some SATA-To-USB adapter HDMI+DVI+VGA LCD led Controller Inverter Lvds Board Kit for LP154W02(B1)(K6) (Controller for the monitor) Some thinkpad kbd to usb controller (soon) Some power solution (soon) Potentially some replacement for the fingerprint scanner & the trackpad (those tiny keyboard w/ trackpad gutted maybe ?) Link to the updates : Update 1, The monitor. Update 2, Fitting the display controller. I will keep this post updated as I go along. I will post an update post for anyone who wants notifications on this. Here's a few pictures of the early stuff : Dissasembly : From this, I have kept the external body, the frame, the keyboard, the monitor and the speakers. The early fitting of the components : In here, there's the SDR (witch fits perfectly through the 3.5mm jack ! made to be !) the Pi and (although hidden) the SSD. I also had to cut the frame a bit to fit some stuff. The pi is slightly too tall, but the buldge is not toooo bad. That's it for now
