    Diy projector using your monitor

    Did you know that you can make a projector from a monitor by using a fresnel lens to project an image 100" on your wall or a screen.
    The quality is ok and it can be done easily for a 5 and simple tools and a couple of boxs to hold the lens.
    When you try to set up a projector like this make sure you invert the desktop of the monitor your using ( easy done) as a lens turns the image upside down.
    Any body did this yet im in the process of geting the fresnel lens tommorrow and giving it a try.

    Hi,
    Thats some set up are you using. I'm new to building this stuff. Do you use 3 pc's for your setup and do you need this kind of processing power for your cockpit.

    Not sure if you were asking me that question.(so incase you were) All three PCs are heavily loaded during flight. I'm running instuments on both lower spec PCs and active Sky X. Every process I can successfully run of the main PC helps.
