Not a laptop, or a desktop, but…
A computer for your wall, ergo a “walltop“. An interesting conversion or update of the simple digital picture frame, this do-it-yourself project is the first of its kind that I’ve seen. The article literally takes you through cannibalizing a laptop for insertion into a regular picture frame which can then be hung on the wall. Of course, it’s displayed without a charger cord dangling from it, but I’d imagine you’d end up with it plugged in most of the time. Still, the possibilities for digital and interactive art are impressive. Also, this particular DIY article keeps the touch-pad mouse as part of the installation, so there could potentially be some actual interactivity.
Hmm, I think I have an old laptop around that I might be willing to sacrifice for this….

Yikes! I guess I’m getting to be even more of a hardcore geek as I get older! Still, a walltop computer could be fun. Aw, why not click the link and check it out? It’s Friday and you know you’re looking for a good, indoor, project this weekend!
