What Would JR Do (WWJRD)

What would JR do (WWJRD) when we’re in desperate need of few things to continue building our projects? We learn to make it, right?

Here’s for example: When building the Multi Touch Surface Interface (which is basically a giant iPad in the form of a table), we needed few things in order to complete it, so with the full spirit of JR within us, we improvised on the fly. One of the child projects of this multitouch project was the DIY Projector project, using regular overhead projector and LCD panel.

Why do we need to build a projector for the Multitouch Surface Project? Because we don’t have $1000 and we only have used LCD and overhead projector($25) from the Value Village. This is the cheapest solution so far.

What else do we need? Check it at our wiki. Perhaps we just build all of them from scratch to complete this project. One thing for sure, we have learned a lot during this trial-and-error process, and also made friends along the way.
