I was always fascinated by black & white TV’s but finding one in good conditions is both hard and very expensive. That’s when I decided to build my own TV.
While this is not the “real deal”, building it was a blast. I joined a local Maker community (Snohomish County Makers in Everett, WA) and they helped me with the wooden cabinet building part.
Electronics here are the easiest part, this is basically a Raspberry Pi 2 playing videos in an infinite loop from a flashdrive, a monitor and a PC speaker.
