Hacking in the sense of Hack-A-Day and such. Altering or modifying devices. I don't mean hacking as in software cracking, I'm not a programmer.
Pretty much what I am really interested in is getting input/advice on original designs but some stuff is classed as a hack if it uses pre-existing devices in near-original form. I know enough about electronics to be dangerous but some stuff I just don't know. Specifically what sparked me making the thread is I am looking for a particular device and was wondering what/where I can find one.
What I want is a projector that projects onto a clear surface from the same side as the viewer, especially a windshield. As such the projection must be: Customizable, preferably alterable in color and multicolor would be a bonus, power-able from 12V or 5V DC Circuit. It also should require less than a laptop to be connected to run it constantly, something like the Arduino or Basic Stamp would be good.
