Wallflower Digital Photo Frames Built from Scrap

Rafe Needleman writes on AlwaysOn about Wallflower Systems a Silicon Valley start-up that built its first high-end Digitla Picture Frame products with recycled computers.

The Stroy reads: "To get started, Wallflower founders Mitch Kahn and Gordon Clyne bought 150 old but unused laptops from liquidators and via eBay, for $25 to $150 each. They were obsolete as workstations (most had 133MHz CPUs and smallish hard drives) but had the right pieces to make nice picture frames—most importantly, working 12" LCD panels.
Mitch and Gordon's small team disassembled the machines, mounted the displays in handmade wood frames with the motherboard and hard disk, and added Wi-Fi and their own Linux-based software."
