    New uses for Digital Picture Frames?

    I have two Digital Picture Frames. Both are in great working order. Has any one heard of other uses for them? I know they can act as a card reread with a computer. I have plenty card readers. I'm looking for other uses that people have converted them to. If you think of anything please reply.

    I have only ever heard of them being turned into clocks which doesnt seem that easy according to
    the following. http://www.cibomahto.com/2009/12/wor...o-photo-frame/

    Depending on the features of your frame it maybe easier.

    Use them as a DIY TOM TOM....

    spend ages on Google maps taking screen shots of your route.. then put them on an SD card and flick through them on the Digital Pic Frame as you drive.

    or...

    take some screen shots of the new Applie Ipad screen.. and put them on an SD card and pretend you've got an iPad and you've already modded the frame

    Are those idea's any good?

    Great ideas,

    Your ideas have given me a few new ones. Like mount it to my rear window and have it say "If you can read this watch me stop real fast" hahaha or have pictures of accidents due to following too close.

    Keep the ideas coming

    Take a normal photo of you, cut it out, glue it onto the screen, take a random selection of images from exotic places from the net.
    Hay presto instant holiday of a lifetime photos and no one can accuse you of just photoshopping it.
