I’m a total sucker for stuff like this. We’ve all seen that old television from the post-atomic, retro-future design era with an awesome case, but less than stellar image quality by today’s HD standards. So, Instructable-r MisterM came up with a technique to utilize the retro product design, but upgrade with a modern LCD flat screen, an integrated DVD player, and even a web cam.
He’s pretty gifted with the electronic and wiring scheme stuff, so MisterM was actually able to keep the old controls for that dial-it-in experience. If that’s beyond your skill set, adding the facade will still bring lots of vintage style to a small office, workshop, or kitchen TV.
