"The DSI Project" - Part 1

Well It's been a busy weekend and I have only just got around to take more pics of the setup. I have named the coffee table "The DSI Project" for lack of a better name =)

The pictures above and left are screenshots of my new Flash AppScroller Menu which I will be releasing in the near future...

Below are some pictures of the inside and make-up of the table, and I have also thrown in a video of the Motorised 3-Port USB Hub that used. It is touch controlled and tucks away nicely when not in use. Makes for a great flush finish...Not bad for AUD$12!

I'll post some specs and measurements hopefully when I get more time...

Until then, as always... Enjoy! =)

The Motorised 3-Port USB Hub:

The first pic is the table complete, and the second is the table with the front bezel off.

Now the side panel must be removed to un-plug the Endlighten panel so it can be removed. (Each side wall is held in with 4 screws and the front and rear have 6)

This is a shot of the LCD panel with a foam surround to protect the edges of the glass panel (I'm not willing to break 2 LCD panels!) The LCD is fixed to a sheet of acrylic - Another sheet of Endlighten in this case which is counter-sunk and fixed into the wood for support and strength.

The top and inside views of the table which I will explain in detail in the next post.

Now the whole table with the pieces.

This is the underside of the bezel showing the cut-out groove for the Endlighten sheet.

The USB Hub, Power socket, Switch and PC Power button...

The finished table... At least for now.. ;-)

Hello Paul how are you?
I live in Brazil and I'm trying to set up a table touchscreen so I can show in college.
I found your blog by google and just loved the idea instead of putting a spotlight on the bottom of the table do as you did, an LCD display!

I'm only a few questions about the project can you help me?
I thank your attention and congratulations for the blog!
