I heard someone that someone made the VB into a projector.
Does anyone know how???

Huh? That sounds interesting… maybe he used magnifying lenses or something? Where did you hear about that?

Some other VB site

There’s one mentioned in the “Comfort…” page on v-b.net, but I doubt it’s gone past the “I’ve got a cunning plan!” phase…

However, I don’t see why it couldn’t be done. All you have to do is simulate the LED arrays with something brighter and change the optics a bit. To preserve the stereo, you’d probably want some polarizing filters and a polarity preserving screen. Or, you could flicker the two (sets of) light sources and time the flickering to the shutters in some LC shutter glasses. OR, you could use different-colored sources and use anaglyph glasses.

Anyone have 448 ultra-bright, non-red LEDs they don’t need? 😉 How about some unjacketed optical fiber?


Yeah, I tried it a long time ago using a gameboy magnifier, but I couldn’t get any light to actually shine… just a magnified screen (which was okay, but nothing worth actually using). The LEDs would have to be a lot brighter, or possibly using a fresnel lens might do something, but I don’t have one laying around to try 😛 .
