Gigatron in wood box with HDMI on 75" TV

Post by petersieg »

I found this nice wood box and could not resist to house one of my Gigatrons inside.
And with a VGA to HDMI adapter, it plays nicely at my 75" TV set ;-)

(I used this adapter: https://www.ebay.de/itm/255724092902 )

best, Peter

What a setup! In fact I am more impressed by the wooden box than by the big TV ;-)

Yes. The first idea was to mount the display also inside the box. But HDMI 7" or 10" displays are small and expensive - I don't like them.
So this setup was to see what this VGA to HDMI converter can do - and it works quite well! Good to know, when it is needed.

But now I found a 17" VGA monitor, that fits within 1-2mm inside the box ;-)
So back to first idea and now everything fits inside it. Is it now a Gigabox? ;-)

best, Peter

Makes me think of “luggable” computers such as
