I made this triple monitor mount last fall. It works great. Posted to reddit and made it to the front page. 194,000 views on the imgur album so far. I’d call it a success!
Testing out my new grizzly 22″ hand plane.

Here are a few shitty pictures in case you don’t know what computers look like.
The computer is hidden behind the desk.
I’ve just begun working on a new project and I’ve very briefly been playing with a 4D Systems serial display (the uLCD-32PTU to be precise), ordered from Sparkfun. I figured there was no way I was gonna drop any coin on their proprietary 4D Programming cable, because from what I read it just uses a standard FTDI chip. Fortunately I had my Arduino Duemilanove kicking around, which has the USB interface with a built in FTDI controller (as do most Arduino boards) .
This one’s dead simple, so long as you have a removable ATMega chip in your Arduino.
For Arduino’s with removable chips:
If your chip isn’t removable, it’s more complicated (and might not work):
Of course, this could be applied to any board that is programmed through an FTDI controller. Hope it helps someone.
Here’s a short vid of the progress I’ve made in the last few weeks for my design project.
